Overview

Have your characters gone on strike? Find yourself explaining your story instead of telling it? Do your scenes race by so quickly you put only the barest hint of what you want on the page? Not sure what a scene really is?

Pro novelist Holly Lisle teaches the simple, fun, effective techniques she's used to plot her 30+ published novels (and counting). Learn the five types of conflict that keep readers hooked, the two elements EVERY scene must have, know when scenes are going to be good (or bad) BEFORE you write them, discover how to misdirect most of your readers most of the time, and much more.

Holly Lisle's How To Write Page-Turning Scenes is a funny, relaxed, and comprehensive start-to-finish course with a step-by-step process that includes worksheets, examples, and how-to advice for writers of every genre, and for every experience level---from absolute beginner needing basics, to the published pro looking to notch up suspense and bring in new readers while thrilling existing ones.
