Writing for Consistency without Going Overboard

Postby MichaelMcAfee » Fri Jun 26, 2015 4:07 pm

One writer's nightmare is to publish something, then hear nothing from the fans except for all the mistakes that they found. Especially in series, where fans might debate how something in one book clearly contradicts something in an earlier work. What's a writer to do? Sure, consistency and fact checking will keep the reader from being thrown out of the story, but what to do after publication? What's the sanest way to own up to mistakes? To make corrections, such as errata or future editions? To let readers know maybe they shouldn't try so hard to look for errors?
