I have a question concerning the novel that I'm writing right now. I have been walking around with the idea for my story for a long time. It is a Young Adult science-fiction story and I really like the plot I came up with. The problem is that I always planned for it to be a series of two or three books. I have the first book all planned out and I almost finished the first draft. I already have a lot of ideas for a sequel because the story will not be finished after the first book. I know that editors often don't accept series from first-time writers so I am wondering if It would be better to let this story go. I was also a bit discouraged when I read that most people need to write a few novels before they write one that is any good. I realize that I need a lot of practice so would it be better to practice with single novels rather than writing a full series? I would feel like wasting my time a little. I realize that this is a weird question but I'd like to know what you guys think.
