I need a writing partner

I need a writing partner was created by fats
hi all,

i thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where people can make requests for writing partners and for others to offer their services. At the moment we have too few writers and I feel that we need to build that number up, so after talking to a number of people in the chat room (it really is the place to be) the over riding feedback that I'm getting is the fact that it's hard to write solo, it really needs a proofreader or just someone to bounce ideas of off. So I thought that it would be a good idea to have that place in a writers forum for people to offer their service or to make that service.

So writers if you need help or readers you can offer to help, then reply to this thread with what you want or what you need.

p.s. I take a 100% cut of any money that exchanges hands :P (well I do need to keep the big jag on the road)

This is actually a pretty good idea Fats.
While I'm currently happy with editors/beta-readers, I would be very happy to be a beta for other people and to help new writers to fill our ranks.

Yeah this is a great idea.

I can offer my services as an idea bouncer. I agree with fats, interested people should search their way into the irc chat room since it's a great way to meet other interested people. It is also probably the best way to come in contact with me as I usually lurk around there.

p.s. I can take all money transfers under the table. Fats doesn't need to know!

Alright, I already have a core group of beta readers for Chapter 3 of A Day in the Military but if anyone likes to beta read it I'll be more than happy to give my draft via email. Just email me at camillejonessupergirl@gmail.com

You'd think that superspeed would make me more punctual, huh?

I'm thinking along the lines of what if?
If Shelley Long from the Ulttrawoman episode
had kept her newly-acquired powers, what would she do? I've never seen diane off cheers quite the same way....just a story bouncing round my head

Dru can help.

If you need someone to proof-read or beta-read your story, get in touch with me through a PM. I'd be happy to assist.
I strongly encourage not just new writers, but even the old hats to take advantage of this free service. I don't know how many times I've dropped words or used the wrong ones.

Proofing your own stuff, as I do...and I'm sure most writers featured on this website do the same...can be a mistake. It's very easy to overlook your own typos, and even with a spellcheck you can still end up with a 'their' instead of 'there' and so on. Don't even get me started of grammer checking software...

So remember, Dru can help. I won't be asking to have my name in the credits, I'm not trying to steal anyone's glory. I just want to read your stories. So drop a note in my PM box if you're interested.

Sure Anon

My story has to deal with a celebrity performing a supergirl feat in full public view and how the public accepts her after finding out she has all of these amazing powers. I'm still whittling down who to pick but have an outline in mind of how I want it to go

I prefer any editing requests to stay within the SWM system, so you can PM anything to me here. Oddly enough, I'm more likely to notice it here as it would just go to my junk mail elsewhere.

Be aware that the PM here have only a limited amount of space and probably won't hold a whole story. For beta reading good old email seems to be the best way.

Ahhh... I hadn't had that problem before.

Given the changes that fats made (see below), please PM any content to me. If it's too long, please PM me with a request for my e-mail address.

ok, to make the pm system work better i've increased the size of the pm to 1,500,000 letters long, this should be good enough for most items, if needs be i can extend that further but there could be issues for the server, we will play it by ear on that front.

as you might have seen algae2k now has been awarded the forum rank of proofreader.

If there is anything that i can do to make it easier or better to develop new material please let me know.

I think it's best that if anyone want to collab that they do so through google docs that way space is saved on this server

It's what I've been doing anyway

the site has a Google account and I've created a share folder for people to work on stories

I've set it to private so if you want to use it let me know.

I am always willing to help people.

That said the story you have outline has almost identical plot to my first mazing girl story. Which isn't a bad thing but a thing:)
