In using Finishing School to stay focused and motivated, to finish a creative project, to beat writers block and avoid procrastination, the creative buddy relationship is key. And here is something interesting: The creative buddy doesn’t have to be your friend.
If your creative buddy is a friend with whom you share many other activities and interests, you may become sidetracked when you check in. Having a creative buddy whose only role is to support your creative work helps focus your attention on that one thing.
So it is best if the creative buddy check-in is the main activity you do together. You are creative buddies. That’s the paramount thing. Keep it simple.
