Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Writing a Series Pt 2.
This is the second part of a two-part series. In Part 1 we looked at the advantages of writing a series. Today we look at the How.
Here is a breakdown of the 5 advantages turned into tips.
- I, the writer, can connect my thoughts from one book to another
- Plant the seeds for the next book in the current book
- Successfully close current story or plot
- There is continuity for the reader
- Leave threads unresolved at end of current book
- In next book have thoughts, events, etc. ‘look back’ to previous book
- Research is still there, but not nearly as much
- Research is always an option
- Research enables you, the writer, to explore and expand story and series
- Use Internet, books, movies/videos, and more to develop ideas
- Author has already laid out the location, time period, and customs
- When writing new book use previous book as a resource
- Add new vital information that can be used and expanded in later books
- It makes writing easier
- It helps you stay focused on characters and storyline
- It can speed up your writing
- It gives you a consistent platform
Generally speaking that is all you need to know. Begin here and allow yourself to grow.
Tip of the Day: Seriously consider turning your book into a series.
