Too many series, too many characters… aaaahhhh!!!
A break away from promo talk. Promo, in my opinion, is boring.
Let’s talk about something that bores me even more…organization. As in keeping characters organized. I’m not an organized writer. I hate the word synopsis. Organized plotting makes me break out in hives. The terms series arc blows my mind.
I’m also lazy. Yet I hate getting things wrong.
At some point, though, I figured out I needed to get organized because my memory isn’t exactly what it used to be and when you write several ongoing series and you bring back recurring characters, it’s a good idea have some of reference handy.
