Series Arcs in Miniature

My project list is long, and there are pieces I’m very excited to get started on. I’m getting closer to being ready to start the long paranormal romance series that started my love of writing the genre. And the sequel to that series!

I’m going to finish my current paranormal erotica novella series project first for a very particular purpose. It’s condensing many aspects of writing a series into a short time span, giving me a chance to sharpen skills needed in writing a series. Two of the books have overlapping action. I would much rather figure out techniques for managing that when working with 18,000 word novellas than with 80,000 word novels.

Working with shorter pieces allows me to see everything at once, to figure out where I’m missing the mark and develop tools and practices for making a series tight and entertaining. Plus, they are incredibly fun to write! Two weeks to a finished rough draft? Yes, please. And when I’m done with this series, I’ll have honed the skills I need to make the series arcs of my novels sing.
