I have the characters defined, and the beginning and ending outlined and ready. What I'm still searching for is the overall story arc.
CassaStar centers around a war with another race, so I want the next book to possess a different threat. Space pirates is way too hokey! An alien probe from another galaxy laying a path of destruction? Hmm, Star Trek IV anyone? The discovery of an ancient race that creates a crisis? Damn, I watch too much Stargate! How about an ancient technology unleashes a deadly probe or weapon? Perhaps internal conflict within the Cassan race?
Still haven't hit the right conflict. Any suggestions?
On a less confused note, Beth was sweet enough to give me The Sunshine Award. (And she rather embarrassed me with her nice comments!) Thanks, Beth, and please visit this wonderful lady at Beth: A Work in Progress
I'm going to pass this on to Shannon and Yvonne, because both ladies are always so full of joy!
