Have you written multiple novels, or do you focus on only one?
For the longest time I pooled all of my resources into one long novel. Only now, as I'm trying to get published, do I realize that this wasn't the smartest business model. If your genre isn't popular at the time, selling it will be a pain, so it really pays to have multiple novels on hand. Have you written more than one novel? Which route do you think is better?
Completing one quality novel is an accomplishment, no matter what. With the technique you have acquired doing it, maybe writing one or more additional novels will not be so difficult. Starting out with writing several novels must be unusual, and you could end up with nothing of substance. I think you have taken the right approach.
i have written at least a good 15 novels. four of which is a series, another three for another series, the rest are different stories. i have been writing since i was eight years old.
