How to write serialised fiction
Write more, write better
This is a 22 chapter rough guide, taking you from understanding the core form of serial storytelling, through plotting and themes, character creation, plot twists and much more, all the way through to hitting the ‘publish’ button. There’s even a chapter all about how to cope when people say nasty things about your writing.
And so, whether you are here to stay, or passing through on your way to parts unknown - welcome. I hope you find this guide useful. If you are writing your own serial, please let me know down below.
If you want to see what I’m doing with serial fiction, you can head over to my Tales from the Triverse weekly sci-fi/fantasy/crime story:
I'm working on a serial version of my novel, REPAIRING THE LEGACY. At the same time, I also have a serial running on Kindle Vella.
Thanks for this. I've been writing professionally for oodles of years (under another name.) I've started this serialised fiction - Anthony Eastwood's Diaries - because a friend has a Substack and I really admire her approach. sharonk.substack.com
