How to Write Fiction: Alone in A Room With Invisible People TM: How to Write Fiction

From The Archives: Holly Lisle on Fiction – Part Three (Final)

August 11, 2020

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).
