Writing Scenes for the next in the Series

Oh, yeah.  I'm still here.  I've still been writing every day, though I won't lie - sometimes it was a pretty sketchy sentence via Evernote on my phone . I kid you not, one day it was three words.

We are moving house a week from today.  We found out my husband got a job offer in Ohio, back home, so we're going.  Things are insane.  I am beyond exhausted.  We are so excited.

In trying to flesh out these characters, I'm thinking more and more about their growth curve, and what their next steps will be.  I've written a pretty powerful scene, full of indecision mixed in with contentment mixed in with fear, but I'm pretty sure it belongs in the next book in the series. 

I know, I need to finish the first draft of the first book first.  Then edit it, tear it apart, turn it inside out, give it to twelve beta readers, then edit it five more times before I even think about showing it to anyone else.  But what could I say?  I couldn't help it, so it's tucked safely away for book #2.  If that ever comes.
