  • Abbi Perets

    Mentor motivation

  • "Working with a mentor has made all the difference for me in drafting my novel. Being held accountable is a huge motivator. Having someone knowledgeable to talk with about plot and character issues is -- and I don't want to sound like I'm exaggerating here, because I'm not -- life-changing. Working with a mentor is perhaps the greatest investment you can make in yourself as a writer. "

  • Allison Read

    No more excuses

  • "The mentorship opportunity at is exactly what I needed to stop talking about writing my book and start writing it. With four kids and a full-time job, it was easy to find excuses not to focus. But having Bridget to talk to and help me sift through ideas got me ready to write! I have almost 10,000 words now and plan to have a rough draft finished in the next two months. I would never have made it to this point without her and the mentorship program."

  • Candice Winterboer

    Finally finished

  • "Now Novel helped me to reach my goal and (finally) finish my novel. I can't believe I've done it! I had started writing a novel at least five times before, and never got further than the first few chapters, but the Now Novel process showed me how to write a book in my own time until I finished my first draft."
