Questions about book series.
The first book can be a story, as can each individual book, as can the series itself. I know the typical pattern for a trilogy is “change-steadfast-change”… that seems to add up to a STEADFAST character. (doer changes to be-er … be-er stays be-er … be-er changes to a doer). But I assume this is actually usually an overall change.
For people who have approached trilogies (et al.), how have you thought about this?
Editing to add: This is the actual question: I have a first season of a TV series planned out with a storyform. I’m trying to figure out if the right approach for the following three seasons is to have additional storyforms, so each season is a GAS that stands alone, OR if I should consider an overarching GAS for the four seasons. (I would be happy with either.)
It feels weird to retroactively put a mapped-out first season into a GAS. Because if the MC is in Mind in season 1, do they have to be in Mind the whole time? Do they have to be a Be-er?
My only real experience with something like this is another show I’ve written. The MC is in Mind for the Pilot (which is a GAS), but she is in Universe for the entire show. The initial driver for each is different, but both occur in the pilot.
