My agent is eager to see a sequel to Time and the Soldier (which won’t be known by that title, but I’m still calling it that till we settle on a new one).

When he said that, I told myself not to think about a sequel now because doing so might distract me from the novel I’m working on. But then a really cool idea popped into my head. It would tie into Time really niftily and would be fun to write. So now I can’t stop thinking about it. The cool ideas are the worst, that way.

You know, maybe I should try to do a synopsis in a really brief form, just a few paragraphs …

Uh huh -- just a few paragraphs. Maybe the opening chapter, just to take the idea out for a spin, maybe get a sense of the voice. Okay, fifty pages, tops. One hundred at the most. What was that other project I was working on, again?

What could possibly go wrong?

It's like those killer battlefield robots that eat corpses that the US DoD is thinking about creating. Everything is under control.
