B is for Writing Buddies


My 2012 A to Z challenge is showcasing Script Frenzy.

Writing, especially writing a 100 page script in 30 days, can be a lonely thing. Sometimes you really need friends to help you through it, to cheer you up when you’re down – or to motivate you with the fact that they’re clearly ahead of you in terms of page count.

That’s what the Script Frenzy writing Buddies system is for. You can tag any other Frenzier as a Buddy of yours, (even if you hate each other, actually, though you probably shouldn’t be a jerk about it.) Once you have your list of buddies set up, anybody who looks at your profile on the site will see your army of Buddies – and how many pages each of them has written so far.

You can find buddies in a lot of ways. You can search for other writers through the search menu of the Script Frenzy site. You can buddy people who’ve sent you a FrenzyMail. Or you can buddy people who you see on the forums – especially people who replied to a forum post that you wrote.

And then you see who can get to 100 pages first.

Who’s your best Writing Buddy?

  1. Very interesting and useful info. Thanks! I didn’t know this existed so will have to investigate. (I’m a teachable computer dinosaur!)

    It sounds like a great idea. I couldn’t do 100 page script in 30 days, I don’t think. :)

    Good luck on yours!

    100 page script in 30 days in very ambitious. Good luck! Script Frenzy sounds like a great group.

  4. Sounds like a great device…my best writing buddies are my friends Daisy and Kelly. Although they are not writers, they cheer me on!

    So far i’ve never used a writing buddy for any work in progress. It might be a good idea.
