Great article. Sarah Selecky suggesting that close studying of the works and process of writers that you admire can perform the function of a virtual writing mentor and contribute to your development as a writer.

This is echoed by Lousie DeSalvo in her excellent book: The Art of Slow Writing, in which she examines the development process of a writer, suggesting that “It takes time to learn the language of our art, perfect our craft, harness our skills and develop our own particular form of expression.”

She recommends that writers create their own apprenticeship by studying the works and process of writers that they admire.

What has helped your development as a writer? Let me know in the comments.
