Hello everyone! I’m currently working on a love inspired historical book that I hope to submit to Harlequin by July 1st. I’m about 1/3 of the way through writing it, and would love to have a writing buddy! I’m looking for someone who’s interested in historical romance (of course) and is familiar, or willing to get familiar, with Harlequin’s love inspired historical branch. I really need a writing partner in crime to bounce ideas around, brainstorm, and trudge through the notoriously hideous writer’s block swamp with. Reading the story, maybe chapter by chapter as I write it, would be awesome, and it would also give me a sense of accountability. Up until now the idea of a book has been incredibly personal, and I haven’t told anyone that I’m writing! It goes without saying that all of this would be reciprocated! I would love to help someone else accomplish their writing goals!
If it sounds like we might be a good match, let’s talk a bit more and figure out if our writing personalities are compatible!January 18, 2016 at 10:16 pm #6673
First off Hello Sarah. Next I love Historical romance, it is one of my favorite genres to read. I am not joking Jude Deveraux and Tressa Medeiros are my two favorite authors. I own almost of of Jude Deveraux books and have read most of them to the breaking point. I might have about 50 historical romance books and a few more on my Nook. I would love to help you out. I can come up with some pretty great idea’s, I also know a few tricks on how to help with writer block. I can help with the brainstorming and just bouncing around idea’s.
As of now I have two finished books that hasn’t hod much editing done to them, if any at all. But one of them it’s like something feels like it is missing and I am just trying to figure out what it is. The other I wrote with a co-author and we are taking a little break to work on our own thing before we go at it again. So I am between projects wanting to help out others if there is anything I can help with.
Thanks for reading. I will also tell you sentence structure, spelling and grammar is my down fall as a writer because I am so bad at it. If you can look past those things I think I could help you out. If I am not what your looking for, that’s fine. The way you seem to feel about your story is really great and I know you will do great at it and that you will find the right person to help you.January 19, 2016 at 6:44 am #6676
Hi Tyonca! Thanks so much for replying! Are you familiar with the Love Inspired Historical line or any of the Love Inspired books published by Harlequin? I’m going for a super specific publisher, and I want to make sure that I hit the mark. What a wonderful accomplishment to have two book completed!January 19, 2016 at 1:53 pm #6678
I don’t know of them, but it won’t take long to figure it out. I am a bit of a research freak. I’m sure I could get my hands on a few things they have published and compare the work.
Thanks, but each book is still in its raw form. I haven’t gone back through them yet.
