If you were to consider making a series that may be ongoing, how would you compose a hero's journey to complete a story, but making the journey continue to keep ongoing for a series?
I am asking just to get some ideas for a series. I have more than one hero. My idea is for ongoing quest.
Individual battles can be won and lost, but a campaign must go on.
One of the quests I'm working on is for a robotic spaceship with a cyborg crew that is in human form is sent to explore the innermost reaches of our galaxy to find the ancestors of humans who might lead them to the very first world where beings who spawned humans came from.
You may find this idea radical, but what if in the beginning being of pure intelligent energy with telekinetic and telepathic abilities who became known by primitive cavemen as the Leviathans, which is where levitate comes from are connected to our ancestors? As energy transformed into matter, these beings took on physical bodies. The being with the original bodies became the Lemurians who are said to be genetic engineers who created a sort of Garden of Eden to create many of the ancestors of life forms from long ago. This, of course, will be the end of the journey.
