    Writing mentor

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Nadala, Oct 11, 2007.

    Hello all, I'm looking for a mentor for my novel work. I need to learn to be a better and more powerful writer. I need someone who has time for me and is ever so loving enough to want to help me out for free. please pm me.

    i'd be happy to do that, but if all you want to write is violence-based/containing work, i won't be able to... however, if you want to take the time to learn how to be a better writer and are willing to forego the violence, i'd be glad to take you on...

    love and hugs, maia

    I'm sure I can find away around the violence for other works. If you want to show me how :-D

    Don't try to find a way around violence. If the scene requires violence to tell it, then by all means, tell it the way it's meant to be told.

    But don't be violent just to be violent either, if you know what I mean :)

    I can review your stuff now and then too, as time permits.

    I don't want to be violent for the sake of violence alone. I just know it's needed in some of my plots. So how about it you want to be my mentor :-D
