#tagyou’reit or The Subtle Art of Co-Writing, Part 2

Carrying on with the idea of writing with a partner, I wanted to share with you some of the advantages and pitfalls of doing such. I thought I'd start with the pitfalls. You might recall that I co-wrote two books in what was supposed to be a trilogy, but was never finished, with three other …
