A glimspse into my musings ... as rambling, twisted & demented as they may be
|I read an interesting article the other day on writing buddies that I wanted to share with you.
The opening of the article caught my attention as it describes writing as often being "a solitary pursuit." As I was reminded last week when my writing partner went down with the flu, that couldn't be further from the truth in my case. While Adriana Noir and I do not collaborate on the same writing project, we write together. Confused? I don't blame you. Perhaps it is part of the "twin bond" that everyone says we have, but we are happiest, and most productive, when together. For us a that can be as simple as an open IM box or as blissful as side-by-side desks in the den. Without that connection, each word is like letting blood.
For some, our type of dependance would be stifling. Even I wouldn't call it ideal, but it is what it is and it garners results. Accountability partner, critic, cheerleader, editor, or just a friend to listen ... simply put, not everyone is looking for the same thing in a writing buddy.
