Working on a writing project with another author can be tricky. It’s easy to see why some authors avoid joint ventures like poison. On the other hand, collaborations can be a great way to increase output and reduce writing time.
I recently began collaborating with the author Paul Collins on a six-part Young Adult fantasy series called The Warlock’s Child.
Two and a half months after preliminary discussions I had the first of the six The Warlock’s Child novellas in my hands. If there isn’t already a proverb saying ‘Two minds make light work’ there should be. When a collaboration runs smoothly, writing time can be dramatically reduced and output increased. That’s the good news.
