’cause I’m forced to.
Mostly, I’ve been brainstorming how to set up my first book, and even thinking up to smash the 5-7 book series into a trilogy. In a way, it can work well. My books would be longer, meeting 140-160words, but they would work out better and look better to a publisher. My series isn’t indefinite, so a trilogy would be better liked.
I’m practicing how to set my character into constant danger, rather than an up and down roller-coaster in the scene. Bring in a high-energy opening, and allow some carry over before a built up and explode at the end. BOOM! The opening would be longer than traditional stories, about 20-40K before the slope downward.
