I have a cunning plot, but I don't yet know what it is

Today someone tweeted me to the effect that they had just finished listening to my podcast novel for the second time, and how was the sequel coming along....

I replied that the sequel had been started but progress was slow, due to the fact that I'd been doing other things. I assured them, however, that the sequel would be forthcoming. And I really meant it, despite not having touched the draft for several years. Every so often I get a query about the sequel, and I generally reply in the same vein, though each query fills me with guilt for withholding stuff from my listener/readership. This time the request spurred me to read what I'd got so far, and it turns out I really want to know what happens to the characters in the story.

There is only one way to find out, so I'll have to schedule some regular, major time to continue with the first draft.
