How to write a series of nine books according to my brother,
book 1: Introducing the world and characters.
book 2: almost a slice of life with hints of bigger things to come
book 3: start the story you want to tell, perhaps introduce a villain
book 4: focus on one character that you haven’t focused on. Have character do something big (perhaps unforgivably stupid)
book 5: Middle of the adventure, almost slice of life but during adventure, excitement and action.
book 6: the false ending, the resolution, up until the last couple chapters, when it gets bad
book 7: Darkest one, focusing on the villain the most, trying to pull themselves out of reign of darkness, last few chapter= hope
Book 8: leap of faith, putting what the have to do to the test, end on a downer note,
book 9: start off with downer note, bring hope back up, climax resolution.
When I was 9 I had planned out a series of nine books (I only actually completed the first one and got half way through the second, but I had a story I wanted to tell. When I asked my brother how to write a series of nine books, his response was this. I henceforth thought he was a literary genius, I just thought I’d share this with anyone else writing a series of nine, i’m sure there are many other ways, and this is probably only works for a fantasy, but I still think it is great, thanks bro.
