Starter Help for a new web novel

10 months ago | bluerobin (Member)

Hey guys! Anyone out here willing to guide me through the generalities of writing a web novel. I've already posted the first chapter in a couple of places, but I would really like for someone to help with the nitty gritties of it.

I'm writing a space-based web novel about an interplanetary conflict.

Any help is appreciated, thanks. Cheers.

    These two links from TV tropes should serve you well:

    Also, I suggest you provide a link i your forum signature, or in the thread here if you're being modest.

    Earnestly, the links above will likely do you better, but if you were looking for some help on basic design and your first chapter I have my thoughts collected here on the serials that I think do it best: http://revfitz.com/web-serials-made-best-impressions/
