Co-Writing Master Over You
Hi! This is going to be a sort of joint post by me (Cerys) and Ethan about our process of writing Master Over You together, and how we did it. I hope you enjoy!
Writing together is honestly really hard sometimes, haha. I don’t know if I’d suggest it for most people, actually. There’s a lot of planning that goes into it; a lot more than just a regular book.
One thing that helped is that Ethan and I have known each other for a long time and have done things like this before. We’ve never published them, but sometimes we would do silly back and forth emails with each other where I would play one character and he would play another. It was really fun, actually. I enjoyed it.
I think the thing that comes up the most is that the two writers might have a different idea of what the characters would do or how the story will progress. I’d say that’s probably the main issue with co-writing something with someone. It can take a lot of planning and work to make sure everyone’s on the same page. For us, the thing that helped the most is that we created the characters together, you know? And the story as a whole. I wrote Angeline and he wrote Noah (and we sort of shared Chastity for different parts), but before all of that we came up with how we wanted them all to be, with the both of us.
What Cerys said is important. One thing you can see when reading different books by different authors is how their writing style and voice can change a lot. Sometimes the style and voice changes with the same author and different books they’ve written, too. If you’re familiar with an author’s style, then it’s easier to know what stylistic choices they prefer to make. This can help a lot when attempting to emulate another author’s style, or when trying to write something with them in a joint project.
What helped me in writing with her was that we’ve done it before in some capacity. Besides that, we’ve also read each other’s writing many times, too. I enjoy her books a lot, and I like hearing her talk about them and what parts she likes. She gets really excited, and it’s fun to see her smile like that.
I remember when we first shared our writing with each other. I don’t think it was good. I know mine wasn’t. That was years and years ago, though. We’ve both grown as people and as writers since then. I don’t think we grew on our own, though. A lot of my writing choices, and from what she’s said, hers also, were learned from experience through writing and through reading. Considering we’ve both read each other’s writing a lot, it makes sense that we’d gain insight in our different styles and know how they do or don’t work together.
One other thing that’s important to know is that Cerys acted as a continuity editor, too. We both edited the entire thing for typos and grammatical errors, but she went through and edited it for style and voice, also. She made sure to mix our styles together, while still trying to keep them distinct and separate, too. It’s a difficult task, but definitely important for any authors who decide to co-write a story together.
