Writing A Long Series

Anyway, since I mostly write insanely long series, and the fact that I don’t really get tired from them, I decided to write a blog post about them. And mostly my tips to not feel overwhelmed by writing long series.

#1 Plan

I don’t mean planning the entire story out, but it is a very good thing. But ensure that you probably have the rough outline of the series out, or planning it up until the middle, which ensures that you probably have a huge amount of content to work back on.

#2 Creating A Note For Each Character

This is important since large series always mean a lot of characters, and the way I keep track of their personalities and the various details. I write them all down. It makes keeping consistency easier, as there is a way that you can keep track of them.

#3 Keep A Timeline

This can be very useful as the story might take a lot of time, and events happen at specific times. Allowing you to figure out when to put chapters, or in which order without ever confusing yourself. And can be useful when you’re deciding how old is characters. You cannot have a character whose birthday is in January still be the same age when it is July the next year.

Overall, these are mostly what I do to sustain myself writing a long series, and also how I keep track of everything.
