I'm looking into starting up my own web serial over the next few months (going to write out the first few arcs before I submit and start uploading), and I wanted to introduce myself!
Here are the questions I have:
1) How many words should I strive for, on average per chapter, to hold an audience? Right now I'm pushing out about 1000 words per chapter. I'm making it a personal rule (shamelessly stolen from Agreyworld)that every chapter will move the plot along in some way.
2) Is one scheduled post per week enough? Most web serials I read post bi-weekly, and I plan to transition to bi-weekly in the future - as is, however, it's taking me too long to produce a quality chapter given my current writing speed and work schedule.
3) How can I improve this description? I'm hesitant to put in more about the story without revealing certain aspects of the story.
My story is placed in a futuristic earth, where nanotechnology is run of the mill. Rhea discovers that her friend Jasper is a victim of forced nanomutation by the world's top nanotechnology company, resulting in him being able to create fire. Rhea helps him discover that he can use his powers to do things in the world, to make change and fight for what he believes in. The results are catastrophic.
Thanks for the help!
