Hey there!

I've been writing my first novel for a while now and i'm currently at the third draft. It's a space fantasy called "Destiny's Arrival" which will be a 7-novel series. But I haven't planned anything past the first book, I feel like I don't know the characters well enough yet and worst of all: For the first book in the series, I think it really falls short on being a self-contained-story, let alone setting up anything for the sequels. However, the silver lining is that I know there is a great story in there somewhere with great potential.

Wouldn't it be a better idea to write a different novel and go back to Destiny's Arrival at a later and better time? All while I start doing some actual worldbuilding and outlines for all the novels in the series?

What do you guys think?
