    Need a Writing Friend

    My email is collecting cobwebs. I think I get about 3 to 5 emails a week, and most of them are disappointments.

    I'm a YA writer. I like to write mystery/suspense with a romantic touch in it, (not always tho.) Right now I'm revising one of them and it's lonely going through it. I don't need feedback or a beta, just someone I could talk to about writing in general. I am savvy with YA agents and publishers so if you're looking to submit I could help you. We could swap chapters every now and then too if you like.

    Just having someone email and say, "Hey what's up?" would be joyful enough. PM or write here, thanks.

    I'm not a YA writer, I write romance, but I love having writing buddies to chat to. I'd also like an excuse for checking my email that isn't waiting for rejection letters to come rolling in

    If you want, check out my profile and see if I seem like an interesting person to you. If so, you can PM me and I'll get in touch with you. Whatever happens, I hope you find an awesome writing buddy.

    I write in the exact same genre, and I'll be happy to be your buddy also. You can holler at me on Twitter or through my blog.

    I need a writing friend too, and the kitty in your avatar looks a lot like mine! I write I don't even know what, I guess it's sci-fi fantasy, probably not YA, but I do need someone to keep me motivated. And to say "hey" occasionally because otherwise all I get in my inbox is the "Recipe of the Day"
    It's got your lighter. And that missing sock.

    Happiness is like a bird. The damn thing keeps flying away. Next time I find it I will shoot it and have it stuffed.

    Hi!

    I'm also always looking for writing friends. It's always great to be able to talk about books, our projects and everything else. If anyone want to contact me, feel free to send me a PM and I'll give you my email.
    And if you're wondering what I write, YA and new-adult so far.

    I am brand new here to the water cooler and would love some folks to talk to. I write across all genres but right now I am working on a contemporary YA romance adventure.

    I would love to chat with any/all of you.

    Hey everyone,

    Im up for a writing buddy. Even aside from a beta or crit partner. Especially someone whose going through the submission process for the first time, or someone who wants to mentor me who is a vet to it. It seems a little overwhelming LBS. I'm here though if anyone is interested

    Glad I checked the forum!

    I was just throwing put a call for writing partners on Facebook.

    Ok, a little about me: I write speculative fiction for the adult market, but also some work for younger readers. I've been writing non-fiction for years and write full time. Last year I made the shift to writing fiction, and have taken courses at University, read dozens of writing books, and written a couple of hundred thousand words of fiction.

    I am entirely self-published, and eke out a very modest living.

    So, I'm looking to find someone to exchange work for comment, review, advice etc. I'm hoping to pair up with someone with similar writing interests. Speculative fiction covers SF, Fantasy, Horror, Supernatural etc. so my interests are reasonably broad.

    Feel free to check me out at

    www.eoghanodinsson.com - non-fiction


    Get in touch if you're interested in discussing some kind of collaboration.

    Bet wishes!

    Hugh
