beginning a book

I am starting the second book of a YA trilogy. Starting any book is a leap off a high branch. I think most writers are like sugar gliders. We can't fly, but we have the illusion, for a while, that we can, and then it is time to look for a place to land. I usually land in the middle of chapter four or so and have to reground, rethink the logic of the emotions and the storyline. This is something like climbing back up to a place from which I can jump again. I am going to try to blog the process of writing a book here. We'll see.
