Mentoring

Looking for some professional, targeted help with your writing? Feeling stuck with your novel in progress? Needing help outlining, plotting, preparing, executing? Generally need some writing wisdoms and guidances? Mentoring can be whatever you want it to be; it is essentially a private creative writing class with one thing on the syllabus: your needs.

Some possible tasks include (but are not limited to):

  • Brainstorming
  • Outlining: plot, structure, character arc
  • Story Preparation; pitch & premise, character, arc, stakes, objective, motivations, conflict
  • Revision: improving and polishing drafts in back-and-forth rounds
  • Critique: manuscript critique in a back-and-forth format
  • Conceptualizing effective Speculative Elements and World Building
  • Speaking on a myriad of other writing craft subjects

Mentoring services can be done either in-person or via phone / web conference or email.

Manuscript Critique

Have a completed manuscript to have looked at? Partially completed? A bunch of words on the page that need wrangling? I also offer manuscript critique service.

My strengths lie more in Alpha reading--big-picture content editing-- than in Beta reading-- grammar, fact checking, polish-- with a focus on:

  • Plot & Character Arc
  • Tension & Suspense
  • Stakes & Conflict
  • Objective & Motivation
  • World Building
  • Speculative Elements
