Writing Courses

Below is a selection of Courses that I have used while writing. These have worked for me, helping me keep writing, generating ideas and taken me from a first draft disaster to a completed and revised novel. I hope they can help you too.

How to Think Sidways

By Holly Lisle

This was the first of Holly's Course that I tried. I used her sweet spot map to create and expand new ideas that I never imagined I could have.

It contains fun and easy ways to rewire your brain and get your muse back by your side, and various more career orientated advice about writing.


How to Revise your Novel

By Holly Lisle

I have been using How to Revise your Novel recently to edit Ride the Rainbow, picking it up again to change a disaster into something that is coherent.

Holly has changed the way I look at editing my stories forever. I no longer just look at the words on the page, instead, I see the characters and plots, and the chaos that I left in their wake when I forgot about them halfway through the book.

These are processes that I not only use when editing but I keep them in the front of my mind while I write in the hope that I won’t have quite so big a disaster to fix next time.


How to Write a Novel

By Holly Lisle

This course of Hollys has been one that I have been waiting for and have only just started. Over the next year, I will be working on a new project.
