Writing Hitsuzen asks: You’ve shared on the podcast that on several occasions you have started a project, then realized that the format (episode, serial novella, novel, etc.) you initially chose for that story did not work. Sometimes you have re-plotted the story so it would fit the format you wanted to use, and other times you have decided to use a different format that better served the story you already had in mind. When re-writing a large idea, how do you decide between (for example) breaking up a series of novels into episodes and seasons, or re-plotting the story so that it would fit a novel format better?



Note: The last hour of this podcast is mostly about sex.
