I'm seeking a partner(s) who can help me get back into the world of writing stories. I want someone who is, ideally, interested in the quote I used as a title for this partner request. It doesn't have to be a particular genre, as far as I'm concerned, but the whole thing does have to start with some version of this phrase. I'm more adept at using female characters, so someone who is willing to put up with me trying out a male character for the first time would be a blessing. Not only am I looking to update my repertoire of characters, but I am also hoping to work on my vocabulary expansion, too. Nothing too fancy, with a thesaurus used on every sentence, a la Joey Tribiani, but definitely something more than "said" every time someone speaks would be nice. I'm really hoping for something that isn't going to turn into puppies and sunshine, and I want to eventually come to a satisfying conclusion. I need someone in it for the long haul. Please, please, please... be the answer to my muse's prayers!
