thinking about how lotr is one novel in six books but the publisher decided to bundle it in 3 volumes and every fantasy writer has been stuck doing trilogies ever since

@Blakely or you can do like 300 hundred, die, and let the mistborn guy write the remaining ones

@Blakely @horsefucker_thicc robert jordan voice: pfffft, amateurs. try writing 10 books, stopping to make a prequel, finishing the 11th book, then dying before writing the 12th, leaving notes for your successor who is somehow even more verbose and turns the planned finale into three 800 page whoppers
