100 sites for fiction writers: #15 - Holly Lisle

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

Holly Lisle

Holly Lisle's Create A Plot ClinicFor two decades now, author Holly Lisle has been working in romance, science fiction, fantasy and related genres. But she has not been content with only writing fiction, but also has been a big proponent for budding writers.

Of all the websites to make this list of 100 Sites for Fiction Writers, I have to say that Holly Lisle's sites is one of the most extensive, covering everything a beginning writer needs to know. If you are interested in writing fiction, do yourself a service and spend plenty of time looking over Holly Lisle's site.

Holly Lisle first began to draw attention as a writing guru in 2000 with the release of her e-book, Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love and Money. Interested in this e-book? You should be. And to make it easy for you, Holly Lisle has this e-book available for free at her site. While you are there, make sure to check out some of the other free e-books available, including a couple of novels. There are also about a half dozen other e-books pertaining to fiction writing for sale on the site.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

There is also the Forward Motion for Writers portion of the site. Here you will find tons of articles, online courses, link to e-books, and just about anything else you might need to lead you along your journey as a fiction writer. The advice given here is common sense, learned from Holly Lisle's years of experience.

Whether you are more interested in learning about the writing craft, writing as a profession or what-have-you, it is all covered here.

Holly Lisle's site also contains comprehensive FAQs for everything under the sun for fiction writers. Think you are ready to go pro, check out Questions About Going Pro. What about Worldbuilding? Or do you need to learn more about the Business of Writing?

There is also a Writing Diary, sort of a blog following Holly Lisle's latest writing projects as well as other interests of hers.

If you would like to know more about the author, check out her Author page or Readers page. And don't forget to sign up for Holly Lisle's Writing Updates newsletter, full of more tips and advice.

Hum, I'll have to check it out. I've never read anything by her. Never visited her site. Thanks for the heads up.
