Almost the First of April…
Which means the first quarter of the year has gone by and I had a number of people (who are not in the mentorship program I offered this year) ask how that mentorship program is going.
The answer is simply, from my side, wonderfully. In fact, I am enjoying it a great deal.
Here is how I look at it. In essence, I am here for the writer. Any time for anything to help the writer move forward. I let each writer set the pace and I do my best to be supportive, but not pressure.
As it first started, I was back and forth with each person a bit, trying to get up to speed with what each person was doing. And after that I set up with each person at least an every Sunday check-in and update, so I can see if things are skewing off course.
I tend to answer anything within a few hours, except this last week or so which has had some bumps that will be explained next week. Then it has taken me a day a few times. But I mostly try to respond the moment I see a question, which means when I open my email a few times per day.
I have given opinions on covers, read blurbs, answered opinions on projects (I will not comment on a work in progress), given life support, and read a bunch of stories and a couple novels. In other words, I have had a blast.
And one of the writers signed up won’t even start until July 1st.
So, because this is working for me (and I think for the writers, but too early to tell for them) I will open this up to one more mentorship starting this quarter and going for a full year (and beyond, I won’t just vanish. Honest.)
The cost is $3,000 and you need to write me if interested in me being here for you for a full year on your writing and publishing world.
Any questions, feel free to ask.
