Since I am patiently waiting for a response from the publisher (because they're swamped), I have taken the liberty of getting started on the sequel to my currently *top secret* novel. In some ways, it's still in early planning, but it many other ways, there are several plot and worldbuilding things I've already constructed that I had planned since around the middle of the first novel (including some things that won't even happen until the third novel... currently planned to be a trilogy with a possible fourth, but the third already has a definitive "end").

The weird thing is when writing the sequel turns out to be harder than the original. Might just need to get back into the swing of things, but it could be because I wanted to make the original somewhat self-contained. You know, because cliffhangers are so overdone. I know what I want to do with this next project, but the meat of what I'm trying to achieve is still thousands upon thousands upon thousands of words away.
