Thinking about rewrites and sequels

I’m thinking about rewriting The Land of Two Moons. I’m also thinking about writing a sequel to it. And I’m also thinking about writing a sequel to The Book of Immortality.

These aren’t new thoughts. I’ve been thinking about writing sequels to The Land of Two Moons and The Book of Immortality since I finished the first drafts. Every once in a while, the thought pops into my head. I don’t actually have plots that could be used for sequels, just brief scenes and snippets, but plots are something that take quite a bit of work for me. If I wanted to write a sequel, I’d have to spend quite a bit of time outlining a plot.

As for rewriting The Land of Two Moons…there are a lot of things that didn’t make it into the story. And since it starts off as a comic and makes the transition to prose after chapter 6, it’s inconsistent. There’s no real way for me to make a collected version of the story if I wanted to.

But is it worthwhile to do any of these things? I have so many other stories I want to tell, and time spent on these is time I can’t spend on others.

I think I’ll re-outline The Land of Two Moons and see if I can stuff everything I had to take out back into it. That’s the first step of a rewrite anyway, and once I’m done with that, I can see if I still actually want to rewrite it.
