Halloween Hopes
2 years ago

Hi Holly,

I had a bad dream: Holly Lisle never finished ‘Warpaint’… I checked the web … … … ‘Warpaint’ was where it belongs, right after ‘Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood’:
Here is the backstory. When years ago I was writing my novel, I used to be on your email list and read your blog. Then, I quit my novel and started writing songs (why? – it’s another story) while you were still writing ‘Warpaint’. Now, I bought your book because of a bad dream… I may need to reread ‘HtCB’. It’s one of my favorite books. I even keep it in a carbon form! It’s been a while since I read one of your books.
Holly, I’m so relieved that you are healthy and doing well!

Best regards,
Halloween Hopes

OH WOW! Thank you so much for that in depth response. I forgot to mention an important detail, I am sorry. See when I wrote that I was listening to your podcast. Miami Mice is going to be a graphic novel. I am a sufficient artist to do this. I will get better. However I am not a writer. I’m not even a good one. But I have these amazing ideas and I have to get them out. Which is where you come in. I need to learn how to write mystery, dialog, stage a scene. SOOO much. And I suck at writing.

Anyways when I just went back to work after spending 2 months residential treatment for anorexia and an exercise addiction. I devoted so much time to my addiction and eating disorder. I am putting that energy into my art. I will be purchasing a membership. Because I need so much help writing.

Thank you so much for that in depth response. I appreciate it so much because I need a lot of help.

I listened to the episode for world building. I am writing a science fiction about mice. It’s 500 years in the future and some rodents are sentient and intelligent. My world is a character in the book. Its going to called Miami Mice. Can world building be over descriptive. Think of Miami, miniaturized and in a sewer.
