I am sorry for the lack of posts last week, it was a vibrant, energetic and exhausting. However, this week I aim to make it up and as always begin it with Tuesday Discussion.
Last weeks post looked at the key points to writing a Synopsis for your manuscript.
This week is about author collaboration.
A few points come to mind when discussing author collaborations.
- Communication– For myself, I would like the author to be in physical form as the creative and writing process could flow a bit more natural.
- Genre – Obviously, your partner needs to have the same taste in genre e.g. fantasy
- Narrative voice – I read Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s Death Gate cycle and the narrative voice at times seemed distinct of whom was in control of what scene. If I did a collaboration I would want a smooth narrative voice with the author throughout the whole novel.
As a reader: Do you like reading novels that have two authors?
As a writer/ author: Have you done a collaboration before? If so, how was the process?
Would you consider doing a collaboration with another author?
