The Serialization Bandwagon

The Serialization Bandwagon

I’ve been seeing and hearing a lot lately about people writing serial novels and even writing episodic stories¬†imitating¬†the style of a TV show with seasons. I am fascinated with this form. I’m a lover of TV and lately, watching shows like, Leverage and Supernatural, which have amazing characters and strong stories, it makes me want to try it.

It’s like a throw back too to the days of Dickens when it was the norm for authors to write in serial form.

I had an idea for a serialized story and I’m going to give it a try during National Novel Writing Month this year. (I love NaNo for the opportunity to try new things!)

If it works well, I may restructure Parallel Loves (which is currently really not working plot wise) into a serial format. I think that will allow the story the space that it needs. It’s an enormous story with new worlds, many characters, and a complex plot. I think structuring it more like a TV show might be just what it needs.

Some other sources of inspiration are the Self Publishing Podcast, which features the authors of Yesterday’s Gone (I love their format and am going to use a similar cover idea and pricing format, I think). Also,¬†thesecretstorylair.blogspot.com¬†is a blog about writing serialized fiction (and the author probably thinks I’m stalking him because I keep on commenting and sending him questions. I’m so anxious for a new post!)

So hopefully soon I’ll have some new work to share with you!

And because I love playing with covers to help inspire me while I write…
