hope this is the right area. I've got (I think) a decent plot for a fantasy novella/novel (somewhat darker and twisted version of JM Barrie's Peter Pan). I just can't write dialogue for the life of me.

thus, I'm looking for someone to... collaborate with on this, as a co-writer.

Good luck

In my opinion, your best course of action is to work at learning how to write dialogue. A novel takes many hundreds if not thousands of man-hours to write...

So it is really a crap shoot to try to find someone who is willing to devote that much time to somes stranger's idea/project.

Anyways, read the link above and good luck to you. I hope you give this site a chance, many of us would have never gotten published without this site

thanks. don't get me wrong, I agree with your op - it's just not something I've got much time for given my job (tho that could be said of nearly all of us that don't write for a living).

I'm going to start reading the "learn writing w/uncle jim" thread, and per the site, I think it's bloody amazing that there's such a community (in a good way).
