Why You Need A Writing Buddy

Muse at 11, Writing

You don’t need a writing group.  (That is my personal opinion and I will explain myself later.)

But you do need an awesome writing buddy so that, when you realize your novel (which you originally thought would be this pleasant 200-page YA book) has hit 501 pages and shows no sign of stopping, you can have amazing chat conversations like the following:

Ich:  HOLY CRAP

HOLY CRAP

8| !!!!

Subs:  Whaaaaat???

Ich:  SCVK [my novel] hit 500 pages.

THAT’S LIKE

0.5K

Ich *weeping* what is wrong with me.

Ich *still weeping* Immo get you that weird Sleeping Beauty story soon.

Subs:  You are AWESOME THAT IS WHAT.

You keep on working.

Ich:  0.5K??

Subs:  YAY.

That is a YAY.

Ich:  i hope i can answer for this in the afterlife

“Girl, what you doing half yo’ life?”

Subs:  WRITING BOOKS LIKE A BOSS

Ich:  “Mm…Mr. Saint Peter I wrote a lot of book.”

“Like, a LOT of book.”

OK i want you to write “WRITING BOOKS LIKE A BOSS” under my latest facébook post.

i will keep working

i will even put on pants now

and go get a new notebook

Subs:  Yout put on them pants

Ich: i have to stop listening to duran duran first.

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

  1. Aw, you’re so sweet posting that. But I agree with you. Writing groups come and writing groups go, but what’s important is to have friends who are enthusiastic about your passions and urge you on. You do that for me as well.
