What's the general consensus on serial novels? I'm unsure whether the serial format is the way to go for my first attempt at fiction. On the one hand it breaks the work down into more manageable chunks and allows more frequent and regular feedback. On the other hand I think it'll be easy to write myself into a corner and end up going down a path which I'd probably have rewritten if I'd got a couple of chapters further down the line. Any advice would be much appreciated.
