To Series or Not To Series…?
Ah, that is always the question! Who am I to dash your hopes and dreams, dearest writer? This is the only time where the end of a story is the beginning of another–and even then, series do end. However, don’t despair! This is one to the thing that I need to tell you about series versus stories.
If you are building out a world with people, specific mythology and characters, you might want to consider a series.
If you think that you story can be told with just one book, you might want to just write one story. If you want write a sequel–there is more story to tell. A series gives you more or multiple stories to tell.
Series are investments! They allow your mind to flex and wander!
Stories allow your the freedom to focus one story at a time and develop what you want to say to its conclusion.
Don’t stifle your voice by the space you think it might take up.
