Following on from my last post, Holly Lisle’s
is open for business!
Registration is only open between now and 11:59 PM (EST) on TUESDAY, Dec. 15.
Here’s what Holly has to say;
“The class started out back in 2009 having two registrations a year. I changed that at some point, but when I did, the vibrancy of the community of writers that developed in the classroom (a sort of war-buddies-who’d-shared-hardships-and-SEEN-things camaraderie) disappeared.
Once again, How To Revise Your Novel is only going to be available either one or two times a year.
Once you own How To Revise Your Novel, you can use the classroom and (soon to be added) forum year-round, retake any lessons, go through the initial process and then the streamlined process with every book (or story, screenplay, biography or any other fiction or personal nonfiction you write).
Being a working writer who creates great stories that readers love isn’t some magical gift of the gods. It is a learned skill. It takes a lot of words, and a lot of work.
But YOU CAN DO IT.
How To Revise Your Novel is not an easy class.
You cannot learn how to revise your work by READING lessons.
THERE IS NO THEORY in How To Revise Your Novel.
Every bit of it is practical, step-by-step instructions.
You have to actually print out your manuscript, print out the worksheets, and DO the work.
And with your first professional-process revision, there is a LOT of work.
Here’s the good news.
The first REAL revision you do will be the MOST PAINFUL, MOST DIFFICULT, MOST AGONIZING and occasionally, the MOST HORRIFYING revision you will ever do.
How is that GOOD news, you’re asking?
Laughing (If somebody told me I was walking into pain, you better believe I’D ask.)
So here’s why it’s good news.
Discovering during your first revision everything you do wrong over and over in your writing teaches you not to make those mistakes anymore. Your writing becomes better when you revise, and your NEXT first-draft manuscript will be better from the beginning.
So your next novel’s revision will be EASIER to do. Usually, it will be a LOT easier.
Trust me, with each new manuscript, you’ll invent brand-new mistakes that you’ll only discover in your next revision.
But learning to do a real, solid, step-by-step one-time-through revision will make you a better writer, and every book you revise from then on…
…will also make you a better writer.”
Don’t forget, Registration will be open for 7 days, until 11:59 PM EST, Tuesday, December 15, 2015. (And if you use my link I may receive a commission payment. However, ONLY people who’ve taken this class are able to recommend in this way, so you’re listening to someone who has been or is going through the process, and I wouldn’t recommend it otherwise).
If you miss the registration, you will need to wait for the next class, which will open in either six months or a year.
