  1. Maybe the co-writing project will be just different enough to be the other thing you work on later on the day so you can try the “two projects at the same time” venture.

    Teasing the cover. Boo! Glad you found your train of thought and did not leave us wondering. I hope we can see cover A and cover B along with the actual cover for the reveal. That would be a fun peak at their creative process.

  2. The Twinstar project might be helpful to Jim because with you involved he’s not doing it all. Though it sounds like he needs to be kind to himself right now. Lord knows some days I just focus on making sure I feed the cat and myself and we’ve cut back on news consumption in general. I’m very excited to see the final cover!

    1. Very true on being kind on ourselves. I watch no news and am choosy about what news I read, and I think I’m much happier for it.

  3. There was a pair of authors (I think it was Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett, but I’m not sure), who did their collaborations like this: person A writes a chapter, sends it, person B edits/re-writes that chapter, then writes the next one, sends, and they go back and forth like that, with both of them able to rewrite/edit any of the previous stuff as needed, so that by the end, they don’t even know who wrote which parts. That always seemed like a neat way to do it, if it works. I know it would help motivate me if someone was waiting/needed for me to do my part so that they could do theirs.
