View Full Version : Looking for a writing buddy/crit partner!

02-03-2014, 01:24 AM
Hello all!

Iím looking for a writing buddy/crit partner to, primarily, get feedback on my WIP (anything from the writing itself to the story). It'd be great if you're writing YA too and I'm more than willing to reciprocate. Upper MG is also fine. Ideally, Iíd like this relationship to be a long term one, with both of us motivating each other to keep writing and also be a listening ear for each other to our storyís problems and bounce ideas to solve them :)

About my WIP:

Itís YA Portal-ish Fantasy with a tiny stash of Dystopia, and a little on the dark side (I think. Iím working to make it darker). Currently, Iím tearing it apart and re-writing it again. The last draft was completed at 97k.

The absolutely horrible query letter of it can be found here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8651951&postcount=1) (though itís more like a query for a tiny arc cuz Iím that bad at writing a QLÖstill working on itÖ).

To get a feel of my writing, the first 420 words can be found here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8615984&postcount=25).

If youíre interested or need to know more, shoot me a PM or drop a message below! Itíd be great if you could tell me about your WIP too and give a short writing sample of it. Hopefully we'll be a fit!

Have a great day! :)

I wouldn't mind, if you guys would like to :)

BTW, Adrianna Burch, I've replied to your PM!

I'm looking for some buddies too.

RLim29, I like your story after the One. The diary entry didn't grab me but the rest of the story did.

I'll send you a PM.

RLim, I sent you a PM.

I'm interested in multiple writing buddies as well as a YA writing group, so anyone on this thread is welcome to PM me :)

I'd like to join a multiple buddy group too. Writing YA.

Hi guys, I would be very much interested in this. I just started on a new YA sci-fi/dystopia -esque book, and one thing i've wanted is a writing group or writing partner/critique partner so if this is still happening, i'd be very interested!

If a writing group does get started, I'd be interested :) I've been looking for quite awhile.

I've been looking for a crit group/partner for a while now. I'd be interested as well.

Hiya all! I'm new here and have never been on a writer's forum, nor have I joined a writing group before--because I've only just recently started writing. But, is it okay if I just peek in on your group (once it's established) every once in awhile, to get a feel for what one is like? Then maybe opt to join later?
