comment How to expand beyond a single series?
@MonicaCellio That's brilliant! Lackey has edited like a half-dozen anthologies of short stories set in her universe, but official fanfic is awesome!

comment Does "crossing the threshold" always precede the "belly of the whale"?
The Hero's Journey is a guide, not a law. It's a description of common tropes and themes rather than a prescription for how events must happen. Things can be in a different order and roles can be blended and garbled.

comment How To Organize Writing?
@LadyFickle I'm a planner; I need a lot of worldbuilding, character construction, and plot outline before I write. But other people cannot write that way and must just sit down and see where the wind blows them. Try both methods and see what works for you. Just because planning works for me doesn't mean it will be right for you.

comment Is it okay to have a character who doesn't actually have a name?
"The first line of this book is "Call me Ishmael", indicating that his real name is something else." I never thought about it that way; I thought he was just inviting the reader to be casual or even intimate with him — "Call me by my first name rather than Mr. Smith or Lt. Jones."
