View Full Version : Seeking a sounding board

12-24-2013, 10:33 AM
Looking for someone to bounce ideas off of for my new novel, The Blood of Patriots. It's a young adult novel with post apocalyptic, sci-fi, and military fiction elements.

I've got a good idea and a great setting for the book but I keep getting bogged down and need someone that will listen to my ideas and give me some feedback to try and help me through the muddy parts.

Anyone interested can PM me or E-mail me at bernardmaestas@gmail.com

What does said sounding board get out of this?

This is exactly what AW's Brainstorming Sandbox (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=180) is all about. It's password-protected (vista), so the general public won't be privy to the basic story, its problems, and the ideas discussed.

In my experience, when a group of interested people bounces ideas around, not just off the writer but also off one another, the outcome is better than any one-to-one with the author alone. Give it a shot, yes?

Maryn, pleased to meet you
