In today's episode we are republishing the much-requested Holly Lisle On Writing - the first three episodes from Holly's original 2006 podcast.
Holly covers tips of all kinds: what to look for in an opener, motivational odds for writers looking to publish in the traditional market, how to test accents, tips on the many ideas you'll have and what to do with them while you're working on something else, revision, and begins her talks on trilogies. She pulls examples from her own works as case studies.
The regular podcast will return next week (7-2-19).
Featuring Spenser the Cat.
