Plotting a Series?
Does anyone know of good resources about plotting a series? I can find plenty about plotting a stand-alone novel, but not much that addresses the specific challenges of plotting, say, a trilogy-- for example, how do you construct a character arc that stretches over several books? Any tips on handling exposition when you need to remind the reader of all that happened in a previous book? I have read a lot of good series, but wonder if there is any material out there that talks about the craft of writing one. Thanks for any help you can give me.
