I need to find a writing partner. Someone with a fairly similar dry sense of humor and (preferably) someone who is familiar with screenplays. I have this idea that I’ve been kicking around for a while (romantic-comedy style), and I was waiting for B to return so I could brainstorm and write it with him. That isn’t happening now, so I need to put out feelers and hope the universe tosses me a bone.
I think that if I have someone else to actually sit down with and play idea ping-pong, I’ll have a stronger commitment to this project. I do want to do it and I want to do it now. I can become lackadaisical in my execution and I’ve wasted too much time waiting for something that apparently was never going to happen, so now I need to search for someone to partially fill B’s shoes. Someone smart and funny who can push me, and who I can push right back.
Where should I search? Put an ad in Craigslist for a writing partner? The closest writing groups are located in Vegas, which is too far for me to travel- especially when I’ll need a sitter for a couple of hours for however often (two or three times a week?)? I have no idea where to begin.
So please, if anyone has a suggestion as to where my search should start, would you let me know? I’d really appreciate it.
