Question: I know exactly what I want, I just can't figure out how to organize it into a book. When I get an idea it plays in my head like a movie so it's never hard for me to take the movie in my head and make it into a book. My problem is that the idea I have now I think of like a TV show. How can I turn the show in my head into a series? When I picture this story everything is connected but I think in episodes not movies. Also with this I think about different bad guys like how in some TV shows there's a different big bad every season. So how can I organize this so that it works as a book series? I'm thinking maybe a 3 book thing would work like, each 3 books would have their own bad guy sort of like it being one season but it's still all the same series and connected. Or I could just write my first story (season) and it play out however many books it takes and just continue and bring in a new bad guy when the first bad guy is done. Do you have any advice or suggestions on the way I can organize or structure my story so that it works and makes sense? I know there are shows based on a series but I've never read one so I don't know how that works. I feel like I'm almost doing the opposite by taking a TV show idea and turning it into a book series which I have no idea how to do. I can picture it but I just don't know how to organize it. Any suggestions?
