I’ve been told that it’s very beneficial to the whole creative process to have a writing buddy.


Someone you can bounce ideas off. Someone who will encourage you when you’re stuck.


Someone who has your back.


MyWritingBuddyI have one of those.  His name is Emmett and even though he’s only three years old, he takes his job very seriously.
