Writing a Series
Tell me writers, have you ever felt this way about a book series? If so, which one? And why do you think that particular series sucked you in?
Have you ever entertained the idea of writing a series?
I’m seriously thinking about writing a series of short stories starring one (or two) main characters for this year’s National Novel Writing Month. I’ve always wanted to try it.
In fact, I read a book in one of my college literature classes that had a similar format – it was a series of short stories, with one main character and somehow, the author wove them all into one complete story.
I remember the structure of this book, but for the life of me, I can’t remember the book.
How pathetic is that?
But it left a lasting impression on me and that’s what I’d like to do with this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge. The trick, of course, is trying to weave all of the mini-stories into one. I don’t know how successful I will be, but I’m really looking forward to tackling the challenge.
