And what should that be?
Well, there are three plots running around in my head, one of which logically follows on from 'Boot Camp Week'. The book covers the selection week at Bears Den - Angus MacLeod's slave training stable - when 24 hopefuls are weeded down to the 12 who will go forward for training.
I plan to come back to those selected - that will be part of one, if not both of the other two plots in my head. But what about those who failed? In 'Boot Camp Week' they are given the option to apply to 'The Wild Side' for a job. l think that perhaps I should follow a couple of the rejects as they go and see Mr Charles and audition for a job at the club. It's time Charles had a leading part, and that might be opening.
As for those other two plots. They're still developing, which is fine. But I see a new character who wants to be a master, and Marco having a starring role, with Sven of course getting involved. I haven't laboured the point in the new versions of the series, but the contract with Angus is coming to an end, so something needs to happen.
And then there is The Guild of Masters, which I've thrown into the revised series at various points. A summer party at Bears Den perhaps, with Angus hosting for key members of The Guild, and an agenda of sorts going on - some internal power struggle maybe. I'm sure there would be plenty of scope in that, with perhaps Angus's back story starting to be told.
So many ideas.
But today in Gozo the sun is shining and it looks like spring has truly arrived, so they will stay as ideas, maturing in my head as I go out and enjoy the weather.
