Advice for Writing a Series

Who doesn’t like reading series? You get to stay with your beloved characters for multiple books instead of just one. And series also usually mean film adaptations, allowing you to stay immersed in the fictional world for longer than usual.

Writing a series is arguably harder than writing a standalone novel because the author has to maintain continuity over a larger number of pages and come up with a compelling plot that can withstand the length of the series while also thinking of the individual plots for each book. A lot of things can go wrong if one isn’t careful in the planning stage.

Miss Literati, a writing website, offers great advice on this topic.
