Looking for a mentor/instructor

Postby Journey_Cat » Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:22 am

Hello,

I am looking for a mentor, or an instructor if you will, who could keep me on the right path. Someone who can tell whether some vital components may be missing, that makes the story just a tad better. And maybe, if possible, this mentor could hand out an assignment, where I have to write a particular word-count so that it pushes me to work on the story. This would be most appreciated, since I guess 'discipline' is what I lack most, to be honest.

I shelved my previous project, since it was too complex and I was unhappy about writing it(although I had written 27,300 words), and started out anew on a different project from two years ago; a fantasy tale. I am 25, so I prefer someone is is quite older than me, and experienced. I intend to look for a publisher when all is basically done and wrapped up, and this will basically be my first novel.

Maybe I'm asking a little bit too much, since this usually is the kind of thing you pay for... :oops:

Unfortunately, I fit the age requirement to meet your needs. I'm willing to help in anyway I can. I'm a mom of eight and grandmother of eight and a half. Who better to push you when you feel like being lazy? I can help in a kind and productive way, which is how I was taught.

Let me know what I can do for you. email me at easterlingda@yahoo.com
