Hi, I would like to have a writing buddy for mutual help with things like motivation, idea development, critique / beta reading etc. There are several WIPs in my drawer and I am hoping to make some progress on at least one of them during the upcoming winter time. NaNoWriMo would also be a good opportunity for that. I'm a hobbyist writer who is trying to improve, but I often run into dead ends. So, having another person to bounce ideas off of or ask for input would be helpful. And I also like brainstorming and trying to find ideas and solutions for other people's writing problems. My writing is all in the area of science fiction and fantasy, but not tied to one specific style or sub-genre. Right now I want to work on an optimistic semi-hard science fiction novel set in roughly 150 years from now. There will be aliens. It might be reminiscent of Star Trek. I'm in my late 30s and not a native English speaker. But I'm writing in English for the reason that the anglophone internet sphere is larger and I might find more readers once I have finished something. I'm not looking to publish anything for money yet. I hope I find somebody here who finds this proposal appealing. Happy writing!
