Writing Buddy

Do you ever need a helping hand? Then working with a writing buddy may be something for you.

You work together on your own books. If you see someone work, this is often an incentive to shift up a gear. Make writing appointments and stick to them.

Finding a writing buddy

Where to look? Online you’ll find forums specifically for finding a mate. There you can share your data:

  • Name
  • Genre that you write
  • Possibly some of your publications (no problem if you do not have any)
  • List some qualities you seek in a writing buddy

What type of writing buddy do you need?

Find someone who has experience with the genre in which you write. So you can learn a lot from each other. He / she will complement your shortfalls.

How does this work?

  • Make a chart with data to work together. Make appointments at home, in the library, possibly at a café, in the park, …
  • Do you live far from each other? Or you don’t always have time to see each other? Then send your texts to your writing buddy.
  • Read and correct each other’s texts.
  • Are you stuck? Your buddy might help you back on track.
  • Give each other tips for new twists, plots and characters.
