A coach is someone who helps overcome roadblocks, finds real solutions for time management issues, motivates through writer's block and essentially works with the writer to reach their writing goals.
A mentor focuses more on the craft of writing. Do you have a project that needs a professional pair of eyes, consistent feedback, structural editing and expertise on the particular elements of writing such as structure, conflict, character, and pace?
Which one of these sounds like you?
