How to Plan a Series with an Octopus Map

In this week’s episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) cover a much, much requested topic: the Series Octopus Map!  We go through what it is and how to do it, using Holly’s Longview Chronicles series map as an example as well as one I created – and left a few spots blank so listeners could see how we filled them in.

Use your Octopus Map to write a series that WORKS from start to finish!
