How to Write Fiction:

How do you create a hero and villain that are perfectly at odds?   How can you create an antagonist that pushes the bounds of conflict for the main character?  How can you get the most out of these three important roles?

In this episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle has created a workshop (no download this time) and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) go through it live!  After the questions are asked (this is a pause and jot down episode) we'll go over our answers.  What will you come up with?

Due to behind-the-scenes issues, today’s episode is the final installment of the Holly Lisle On Writing – Holly’s original 2006 podcast.  The last half was never edited and published, so this will be a treat for long-time Holly followers as well as new listeners.

Holly covers all sorts of questions from listeners: how does age affect publication, how to create unique works, what "idea fiction" is and isn't, how to deal with an inner critic, how to get into depth on a character and what a conscience means and doesn't mean (and how to get really in depth about this because it doesn't mean a character is good just because he/she has a conscience) and more.  Lots more!

The regular podcast will return next week (8-18-20).
