I think I need a writing buddy

Post by LusunguMuyangana » Fri May 10, 2019 6:06 am

Hi!
I am writing again and enjoying it more since I came back to Faithwriters.
I am learning too. I have seen a great difference between writing stories and putting them in my folder and sharing them by writing for the writers challenge.

I think I need a writing buddy. I don't have friends that talk about writing :|
I guess I am still learning too so I am not perfect. I do want to write for God though :D that has always been my desire.

It's been harder to get a buddy since the forums have been a bit slower. I'd urge you to read the challenge entries, find someone's work that you admire and is the same genre as yours and send them a PM asking if they'd be interested. If you can't find someone, let me know and I'll try to help. I haven't been able to enter regularly because of health problems, but I might be able to find you someone!

Thank you! I am not sure yet what genre I am except that I enjoy writing fiction and sometimes I prefer to write real Iife things except it seems I am writing about myself since I am my only example :| .Then I have tried my hand at devotionals and I would like to do more of that. I will look except some of the writers I have enjoyed reading seem to have stopped posting or maybe I noticed two since I have not read many.

Thanks for the advice. :thankssign

Hi! May I call you LM? :D I was wondering what you would expect from having a "writing buddy?"

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Yes, you may call me LM.
I guess I am looking for a mentor.

I don't really know what help I would be to the writing buddy :sorry I hope that I don't sound selfish.

I would like to say thank you for the advice. I would like to say .. I didn't know that. I would like to ask questions.

I feel like my writing is just out of high school compared to the work of others. I don't even know how they write the way they do.

Well, LM, I am very much into writing a book, but would be happy to become your buddy. Not sure how much time I can give you, but let's
see how it goes. Do you know how to send private messages?
