    1. Glad to have you as a friend, Dacia. Have you checked out Holly Lisle’s website? She writes mostly sci-fi but also paranormal and other genres. She has lots of classes and books with workbook sheets on developing character, plot, other worlds, etc. Some of her classes are free; most are out of my price range, but I have some of her books and workbooks.
