The Writers Circle: Collaboration

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Have you ever worked on a collaborative writing project? How did you and your partner(s) handle the writing process? Did you ever have disagreements about plot direction or character traits, and if so, how did you work those out? Were there any tools you and your partner(s) used to make the collaborative writing process easier to manage?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.


Do you have an idea you think would be a great topic for a future The Writer’s Circle post?  Do you have a question you’d like to ask our authors?  Fill out the form on our Contact Us page to share your ideas and questions.

  1. I haven’t. I’m looking forward to reading others’ thoughts.

  2. I’v written in a number of collaborative projects and have felt that it has extended and pushed me professionally like nothing else has. Its exciting and liberating – not to be an “island”. the sharing of ideas and characters is an incredible rush
    I’d do it again in a flash

  3. I’m still learning how to work with others at my job – forget a shared writing project.

  4. love the idea of sharing and helping each other. I have never worked on a collaboration before! But would love to one day! Thank you for this blog…I am now a frequent visitor! Kestrel
