The Writing Process of The Collapse Series
By Summer Lane
I’m frequently asked what it’s like to write a series. The
truth is, it’s hard to sum up the experience in just a couple of sentences,
because creating a series is very hard work! I released the first installment
in The Collapse Series, State of
in January 2013. It’s been two years. I have since released six
books, and by the end of this year, I will have at least ten total published
works. Writing, editing, publishing and selling an average of 3-4 books per
year is a massive undertaking, one that must be carefully scheduled out. My
year is divided into an average of three sections: January-March, March-June
and June-October. This is the most challenging part of the year.
November-December is spent purely writing without editing or marketing, so in a
way, those two months are like a vacation to me – ALMOST!
With my year sectioned out like this, the moths pass very quickly. It usually takes me a full
month to write a novel, and at least three weeks to write a novella. The rest
of the time is devoted to editing and research. Before I know it, the entire
year is already over! I do not write by the seat of my pants. Everything I do
is planned and thought out long before the pen ever meets paper – or in my
case, before my fingers hit the keyboard. My series are all interconnected, so
planning and plotting is an absolute must. I love what I do. I wouldn’t trade
it for anything. I’m so excited to share State
of Alliance
with the world!
