3 Things I've Learned about Co-writing a Book

On a recent trip to San Diego, we were thrilled to find an In-n-Out Burger near our hotel. I'm pretty sure my husband only tags along on family trips to California or Arizona because he knows there's a good hamburger waiting for him there.

The trip was a nice forced writing break. And while there, I re-connected with a college friend. We decided to co-write a book.

Now that I'm back home, I'm writing again. My writing partner (Amber Roshay) and I are seven chapters into our contemporary romance and so far it's been a lot of fun. Here are a few things I've learned already:

1. Skype or speakerphone help with weekly meetings.

2. Amber suggested using Google Docs so that we can share and work at the same time and always see what's been done without emailing a word doc. back and forth.

3. Creating an outline has helped get the story moving.

If you have co-written a book, feel free to share your tips in the comments!
