In our spare time, it might be possible, if you find the idea appealing, to co-author another, different book. One of us writes a few passages one day, sends it to the other person, who changes it to their liking, adds a few passages, sends it back, and so forth (we’ll have to agree what the story is about). How does that sound?

How does that sound? Hard work! Actually, it sounds like just what I need at the moment. I’m not writing anything new. My editing brain takes over and spoils stuff.

So, it sounds like a good idea, co-authoring a book? Two minds can surely do it.

Two minds can surely do it. Hmm, maybe we share one mediocre brain between us!

Some ground rules? We take out anything the other finds uncomfortable. If it gets too much and one wants out, no hard feelings/tantrums/posting shite on the forum. (Naggy ain’t I?)

I don’t do adventure, or erotica. Anything else I’ll have a stab at. (I think.) I like to have an idea of a character and the ending in mind. And work towards it. I’m doing this to get my writing juices going. I also like your humour.

How does that sound? Having regrets?

Sure, we ANNIHILATE bits of text the other wrote that we don’t like. No hard feelings.

Erotica. pff. Never.

I like your humour, too. You’re very witty. Guess that’s the English side of you.

No regrets.

Only question then is who writes the first paragraph. I could start. You could butcher it. Then you get to write the second paragraph and I’ll do the butchering.

You could butcher it. Then you get to write the second paragraph and I’ll do the butchering. Sounds like we’re in the meat business!
