Writing a book with another person
How to write a guide book
Again, the title was something that I came up with and you were pretty happy with, right? You're calling me out. The Communist Manifesto is an example of this, at about 18, words. Joanna: There you go, that can be the title of the podcast. And somebody that I've never met physically, but we've talked for years now online and on Skype and things, the fact that you're so relaxed with me as a character. Because you've worked with so many people, when you're in the driving seat, have you been controlling, for example? And that was good and I felt really great that I was able to do that because that was something I couldn't do before, but I was honestly not prepared for it. My wife doesn't care about my books anymore. Would you consider telling a story with another writer?
And I think if you're going into a creative project with a very fixed idea of what the outcome is going to be, I think you'll be disappointed because it's not going to be that way. But, no, kidding. My mom was an English teacher and she used to say using the F word means you don't have any other language and it's lazy.
Certainly not your inner circle- or critics-first. You have a built-in second brain!

It was really impressive, and I've been using Scrivener for years and I hadn't thought about using it in that way. Not really. I tend to rush into things, but I feel like I have a pretty strong gut sense, I have a pretty good instinct. It's hard to tell because we never really know what's going on in someone else's head. I do think that it's important…we didn't mention this earlier, but it's important to not co-write in the world that you own as an individual because the copyright extends to the world, as well. Force yourself back to your structure, come up with a subplot if necessary, but do whatever you need to so your reader stays engaged. Joanna: Let's start with the pros and cons of co-writing. I think if you stay at something long enough and you're willing to, not work hard, but work smart. In general, I think women tend to be more detail-oriented. We're not going to release anything until we have at least three books, most likely. I mean, I've thought about this a number of times, like inventing that, because you could just take a cut from it and you would do really well. So to share that in the process with somebody else, yes, you're really vulnerable and it's hard. So that was pretty much what we did. I'm trying to go in order. But that's my feeling.

Joanna: And I did the outline. Working through each step with someone else means you get to share the highs and support one another during the lows. My first assignment then, was to get real and dig. It's a journey, it's kind of the end of the world. Want more? But yes, when you go fifty-fifty, I just think it's important to have some written agreement, whatever that happens to be, however you want to divvy up. So that was really interesting. Joanna: Yes. What else? I have several online memoir writing classes running every month. From here.
If so, I suggest you begin your education in how to write about others by learning the difference between memoir and autobiography. And so I don't feel like I moved a ton.
