I am a huge fan of Holly Lisle writing courses. Holly is a pro writer with over 30 years experience most of it traditional until she went Indie. I own all her writing classes. I am also a big fan of her fiction.
There are 38
I use a lot of her techniques but each thing is different for everyone and can be applied in multiple areas, for example, she created a free 3-week course.
How To Write Flash Fiction That Doesn’t Suck! It did help me write flash fiction but it also helped me learn to write tighter scenes for novels.
The take away from that statement is even when you learn a technique you may find it helps you in other areas too. I have found this a true statement for me with all her courses.
I am still in the middle of How To Write A Novel because life slowed me down, but the great thing is I have lifetime access. I can go through it at my own pace anytime. Plus the other courses I have, some I have gone through a second, even third or fourth time.
I always learn something that I did not pick up the last time I went through it. So I can go through this one again if I need to do so. Holly’s courses are always full of gems waiting to be mined that you missed or did not quite get until you need them or learn them again.
The Holly Forums alone are worth the price of admission, but they are free. You don’t have to buy a course to be part of them, but you do have signup to be a member, which is free. If you are taking a course then you are already a member. This is the best writing community ever. It is one of the first ones I found. Its a sort writing home for me I guess. I am so grateful I found it.
Whether you are ready to jump in now or later this is the last time this class will be offered at an early-bird discounted rate. What that means is it is a splinters class, she is writing it as we take it, and once she finishes creating the class, 38 lessons plus worksheets, and demos, it will be full price and stay that way.
So don’t forget you can get it now at the discount and take it when you are ready at your own pace.
I got in on the start so I could get the one time offer of discounted content edit by her husband Matt. I am so

What Other Students Are Saying…
HD Peterson says:
The best thing about Holly’s How To Write A Novel class is that for the first time ever I actually feel like I have a chance of finishing something… and making that something good.
Most writing books I’ve read, or other instruction I’ve received, offer nebulous advice on story structure and vague descriptions of techniques to develop it. Holly gives a clear step-by-step breakdown of how she does it, complete with exercises designed to get you working with both halves of your brain — the creative and the logical — without stifling either one.
Best of all, the story you develop retains spontaneity and the potential for happy accident and surprise without the danger of uncontrolled free-fall into an inescapable abyss. It’s evident Holly knows her stuff. Even better, she knows how to teach it.
This is the best money I’ve ever spent on a writing resource, bar none.
Diane Berry says:
The best thing about How To Write A Novel class is that, after many half-finished novels, I’m finally learning how to complete one.
Holly has shown me how to establish a regular writing routine, and, among other things, has given me the tools to create interesting characters, immersive conflicts, surprising plot twists, and story arcs that sustain the middle of the novel — the place where I’ve always gotten stuck.
For the first time ever, I’ve reached the middle of my novel with so many ideas for what happens next, I can’t write fast enough to get them down.
How to Write a Novel has been a very, very good use of my time and money.
Tom Vetter says:
The best thing about Holly’s courses — besides the fact that they teach all the specific skills needed to become a professional writer — is that she gives you an entire toolbox of techniques to coax your muse into providing you worthy stories, and to keep that slippery storyteller whispering words all the way to a wonderful conclusion.
