Fiction Writing Courses
If you are looking for excellent writing courses, I recommend Holly Lisle's:
37 planned lessons -- may include more -- with...
Concepts broken down and demonstrated, and clear, step-by-step instructions
Live forum where you can discussion the class and your story, get tips, post progress reports, ask questions, and get help, encouragement, and practical support
AND -- the big one -- regular, paced, scheduled writing on your novel with the goal of completing your first draft by the end of class.
In 29 weekly lessons, this class covers everything from overcoming the mindsets that keep you from writing to generating ideas, writing your fiction, developing projects, getting and working with editors and agents and artists or publishing your own work, and so much more.
Serious about going pro? Here’s where you start.
Many readers love series fiction. And so do many writers.
But between the readers who buy it and the writers who create it lies a minefield of structural disasters, plotting nightmares, development errors, and just plain dumb mistakes that can kill even the best and most-loved series.
All of these errors are avoidable.
Learn how to write the series you and your readers will love…without crashing it.
Between the insane extremes of “Never revise your work!” and “You must revise your work a dozen times!” ...
...lives the sane middle ground.
Figure out what you imagined.
Figure out what you wrote.
Figure out what you want the story to become.
And then, following the old adage, “Measure twice, cut once,” revise your story.
But only once.
