This guest post, One is a Lonely Number, over at Write to Done is a good step-by-step on selecting and approaching a mentor. What the guest blogger, Jules, says might be just the impetus you need to just do it.
Really – just do it. Find yourself a writing mentor. Chances are anyone you ask will be honored.
If you already have a mentor, how did you find him or her? What benefits have you seen as a result of your relationship? What benefits do you think your mentor realized as a result of the connection? Remember — the mentoring road goes both ways. The mentor and the mentee both benefit from the exchange and the learning that can happen in these relationships.
So, do it. Get a mentor or be a mentor. You’ll be glad you did.
