For some months now I’ve been mentoring a writer working on her first novel, through CSARN (pronounced see-sarn, short for the Canadian Senior Artists’ Resource Network). As mentor, I am getting paid and my mentee can be reimbursed for expenses.
My mentee has encountered the usual stumbling blocks that come with writing a novel. She has at times felt overwhelmed by, and has apologized for, “the mess” she’s been making. Hoping to help her proceed with her project, I offered her My 5 Steps for Writing a Novel.
If you are crazy enough to have undertaken this kind of endeavour, I hope you’ll find My 5 Steps helpful, perhaps even offer solace in your time of need.
Now, back to my own mess.
