Ann Dee and I went to dinner with a bunch of amazing women and while we were there I said, “I think our book is almost done.”
And Ann Dee said, “No it isn’t.”
And I said, “You don’t think so?”
And she said, “No, I don’t.”
And I said, “Yes it is.”
And she shook her head and the people who were listening to us looked at us like, “Are they gonna fight?”
We weren’t. ‘Cause Ann Dee would win.
This conversation shows you how you can work on the same project, for the same amount of time, reading the same words, and see something differently.
“It’s about family,” I said.
“It’s a mystery,” Ann Dee said.
“There’s a sorta mystery in it.”
“You keep saying it’s about fathers.”
In a little bit, I’ll write the next section of our book about families. Before the book comes out, Ann Dee and I will come up with a less-than-25-word explanation of the novel. It may or may not include fathers and a mystery.
As you work with your partner–don’t worry.
Write with faith.
Do things you would never do on your own.
Just do it.
If anyone has written with someone this week, please feel free to talk about it here.
We wanna know if YOU know what you’re writing.
