  1. I would like to help my boy friend write his comic book. He asks me for help and bounces ideas off me all the time. I try to help and give him all the support I can but I feel like i could/ should be doing more. What can I do to help him? Either with ideas or how to come up with them or I dunno! How do you help a writer?!?!

  2. generateddreams

    If he’s asking for help then do just that. I know when I bounce around idea’s off other people it’s great for them to take it in a direction I just wouldn’t of thought about.

    So be forthcoming with any idea’s no matter how silly they sound.
