Need some help giving your characters the diverse backgrounds REAL people have? Need to create religions or philosophies, governments or communities that actually make your story easier to write and your conflicts easier to find?
Pro novelist Holly Lisle walks you through her quick, fun, and practical system for developing cultures that feel real. You’ll learn to create religions, philosophies, governments and lifestyles different from your own to add compelling conflict and an “I want to go there” feel to your stories.
