People often say that writing is a solitary act.
But you don’t have to struggle alone. Having a sense of community as you’re writing can be incredibly helpful and inspiring.
On Twitter, I saw that Brianna @ Fable’s Library on Twitter was looking for an active writing community online. Figment isn’t as active as it used to be and it’s a massive community where it’s easy to get lost. NaNoWriMo is fun, but it’s only for a month and it can be a daunting challenge for beginning writers. I suggested that we create a buddy system for writers who want a bit of encouragement and then have a larger group chat where we can all chat about writing in general.
We have made a form to sign up to get a writing buddy, which you can find here.
Sign-ups are now open. We will then have a Twitter mixer for everyone to get to know each other and get the group chat started after we make the matches!
