I’m curious about your mentors and the authors that you admire and respect the most. They don’t necessarily have to have written your favorite books, but perhaps they’ve influenced your choices or provided instruction that’s helped you advance your writing.
I feel that I’ve absorbed a lot through a lifetime of reading, but on the other hand, I lack solid instruction (still getting my head around plot grids!) and I’m thinking about taking a class. I just found this series by author Michelle Richmond that looks enticing (I like the tone of her blog posts) and this made me curious if anyone here had someone else to recommend?
