Prior to the Diaspora Dialogues’ long-form mentorship, I had a mentorship during university, where I met a writer/editor several times. The format was more of an informational interview rather than working on a manuscript. I was also less familiar with the field then . . .
I dream of having a writing schedule, so getting my mentor’s regular feedback will help. I also hope to be better disciplined at self-editing, and be as ruthless with myself as I am when editing others . . .
