I like to study.
As a scholarly type, I like to research on my own and in class but I was always puzzled by this notion that you have to have a mentor.
Which made me wonder, what exactly is a mentor?
Is a mentor someone you go and meet with on a regular basis regarding the topic you want to know more about? Can a mentor be a book? An invisible internet friend?
Do you have to have one?
These are just some things I am thinking about this morning. Also, at what point do you move past needing a mentor to being a mentor? Or do you ever?
What do you guys think? Do you have mentors? Have you mentored anyone else?
This, as always, doesn’t have to be tied just to writing. You can also discuss other aspects of your life, I just like a good discussion.
And, I’m with cookie – how can I delete the cookies? Maybe he is my mentor.
