Many of you know that I’m a member of Story Empire. This is a blog where we try to help our fellow authors with tips, tricks, tech, and writing advice. I’m up today, and my topic is the “classic” trilogy. Stop over and say hi. You might check out some of the other things Story Empire has to offer while you’re there.
Hi gang! Craig with you again today. I’m in the middle of writing a trilogy, so take this info with a grain of salt. I’ve done my homework, and I want to share some of that here today. The topic is the “classic” trilogy.
You know as well as I do, that any three related books can be called a trilogy. Did you know there is such a thing as a classic trilogy and it has a pattern? Patterns are good for authors. We don’t always have to do the same thing others have done, but knowing about the pattern helps you elevate your game.
You might be thinking, “Yeah, yeah. Craig is the speculative fiction guy, so we’re going to talk about The Lord of the Rings.” Nice try, but we’re not. LOTR was actually one gigantic, whoppin’-big novel that got chunked up for publication purposes.
