Here's the deal with plotting a book series - there's a TON of it.
1. I have to plot out the overall arc of the series. That is, what big 'ol story will my main character go through over six or seven books?
2. I have to plot the first book, which has many suspense elements and is thus, to use a technical term - "plotty".
3. For the series proposal I have to give synopses of at least two more books, possibly more. So, even though I don't have to plot them out completely, I need a strong idea of their plots.
S'all making me plotz.
