Need a Writing Buddy? Find One Right Here! – by K.M. Weiland…

on Helping Writers become Authors:

Some of the questions I am asked most frequently are, “How can I find a writing buddy? Where did you find your own critique partners? Help! I need beta readers!”

And, yes, as you may have noticed, that last isn’t a question so much as a desperate plea for help. I noticed too!

Need a Writing Buddy? You’re Not Alone!

Writing is a solitary life, which means it’s especially nice to send out a ping and hear a friendly echo in return. It reminds us we’re really all in this crazy adventure together.

  1. Hi there, Reference KM, writing buddy. On checking through those who had commented, I did not find anyone a good match. If anyone is interested in being my writing buddy, I write both romance and thrillers, with eleven books published. I have just completed another romance story of around 68,000 words and am busy writing a thriller.I am also interested in writing screen scripts, I have written two based on two of my books, and presently writing another based on my romantic novel, A Dangerous Love Affair.

    Check out for further details. Should you be interested, please contact me. Best wishes Colin Guest

  2. And the key is ‘passionate about the same type of stories’. My writing buddy have been discussing this very problem… how do we find others. There must be others who like our stories, and whose stories we would like….
    A timely post, thanks, Ape 🙂
