Writing a Weekly Serial

writing-a-weekly-serialThis week I’m recounting a few of the challenges I’ve encountered in my six months of writing a weekly serial:

  • Monday – Getting Ahead, Why it’s best to keep weeks ahead of posts.
  • Tuesday – Losing the Plot, The problem with subplots.
  • Wednesday – Don’t Forget Me, What if people forget characters?
  • Thursday – How Much? The detail versus word count conundrum.
  • Friday – Editing Issues, When you wish you could go back and change things.
  • Saturday – Through the Window, 1840 begins and we discover what Charlotte has been doing on her night time adventures.

To read the serial see the Weekly Serial page.
