Tweet of the Day: Emotional Wound Thesaurus: Being Held Captive
Trilogy Creep is what happens when you have an unexpected runaway success. A good thing for working actors, publishers, studios and writers, but not so much for the story itself. The writers didn’t plan on creating longrunners, but they end up being creating them anyway, with all the attendant problems that come with them. Continuity goes to hell, internal consistency is thrown out the window, you know, the usual things that derail any story.
On the flip side, authors are notorious for writing more than they should and cramming all of it into one volume can turn a doorstopper into a door breaker. But without a firm plan to deal with the bulging story line, well disaster is sure to follow.
