Been a Year Since I Opened This To Three Writers…
Since a number of the writers I was helping in this program from years ago are not writing me as often, I decided to open this back up again for two spots. I really enjoy working closely with writers over the years, but I don’t push myself on them. I am just there to help, answer questions, and point in a certain direction.
Often my weekly responses are fairly short if things are going well for the writer. Sometimes I give my kind of advice. (grin)
I want each writer to be the writer they want to be. And I am a pretty good cheerleader along the way. And this is to help fiction writers. I suck at helping nonfiction writers.
Also, if you are plotting ahead and rewriting, I am not of much help, sadly, unless you want to change that practice. Then I can help.
Basically I am the writer’s mentor. I will help the writer with anything they need help on. (I will not read novels or works in progress.) But craft, attitude, business, covers, sales, and everything else. I will even help you build your first Kickstarter.
The basics of the entire thing is that the writer needs to write me an update letter once a week. Other contact during the week is fine, but that once-a-week deadline helps me stay in touch with what the writer is doing and keeps the writer on track of what they have set to do for themselves. Or at least once per month.
The mentor stuff lasts as long as the writer wants it to last. A few are going on for years now and that is great!
The cost is $3,000 which is no small amount I know. But my time is valuable over the years. (grin)
So if you are interested in jumping into one of these two spots, write me directly. Any questions, write me directly as well.
For me, this is going to be a lot of fun. At least it has been for me so far in the past.
(And this adding on two new will not change anything I am doing with any other writer I am already working with.)
