I emailed my agent about something or other the other day and said how I was SO looking forward to starting book 2 but would wait until after the mid-December meeting with my editor (so I could get her feedback first).
"I think you should start writing it anyway," my agent replied, "as they do like the idea."
Great, I thought, I can get started!
So why do I feel like my fingers (and brain) have suddenly frozen? Urrrgh.
