Written in a question and answer format, The Writer's Mentor covers the common questions posed by new writers: when to write, how to write, where to write, how much writing, and so on.

Impressions: I have always wanted a mentor. Being unable to find one, I figured I was pretty much stuck mentoring myself. When I found this book, I had hoped that just maybe I'd find something of a better mentor than myself. Unfortunately the book didn't live up to even half of what I had hoped. It's okay, but it's

I like this book not because it has especially helpful or unique tips about writing but because flipping through it when I "don't feel like writing" gets me excited to write again. I found this at the library when I was much younger, so perhaps that feeling is due to nostalgia but I am happy to pull out this book when I need a little push.
Just started a creative writing program and I wanted a reference that would be a quick and easy read before I got the materials in the mail. Overall it was okay, but I am looking for other ones that might give more information that would be beneficial.
This book allows the writer more exercises to keep a consistent writing life. I like the list of chapters and moving around to what is relevant to my own writing life.
