Writing a series teach consistency.

Writing a series teach consistency. Which is a good thing in writing. Be consistent with your character. I say this because I have read some stories where consistency was lost in the transition.

In writing a series the author make less mistakes with characters’ attributes and readers come to know the characters better.

Too many think consistency means boring and predictable. But it doesn’t have to be. Working with one main character’s attributes doesn’t have to be boring. You can grow your character. The character can live, grow, and change just like a real person. It can add depths to the story if the character to interact with many more characters than the single-plot where the character only interact with one or two others.

I realized adding more characters complicate the story but it can be done. How? Figure out the relation of the other characters to the main character before you insert them in the story. If they don’t fit into the scenario, then toss them or use them for a standalone book.

No, stories don’t always follow the writer’s planned format. They often grow and take on a life of their own. That’s the beauty of writing.

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I would say it is easier to keep up with books featuring less than 200 pages but when books start reaching the page counts of your books I believe it much harder.
