Working on a story with another person can be a lot of fun! However, it’s important to always remember that it’s a partnership and your opinions matter just as much as theirs, of course.
Remember to use the phrases
- “That’s a great idea! Can you explain?”
- "How do you think this would work with what you’re thinking…”
- "Maybe we could try <insert suggestion> as well”
- ”What do you think of…?”
Writing together is all about communication and understanding. If they don’t like your ideas, try to work around it and compromise. A good story is seen in so many different lights and your view of something isn’t going to be the same as their’s. That’s what makes the story rich!
