Well, whaddaya know? It’s the 18th, which means I was a day late taking my turn at bat over at the Novel Spaces blog. Well, I was on time in my time zone, but the blog’s clock is set to Eastern. Derp.
This month, since I’m all about anniversaries and whatnot, I decided to ruminate a bit about the fact that my hetero life mate and frequent collaborator, Kevin Dilmore, and I have been a writing team for fifteen years. Hell, that’s longer than a lot of people stay married, or tied to a particular cable or internet provider. We’ve been together since before Twitter or Facebook or even :: gasp :: MySpace. Pluto was still a planet when we started writing together, and Space Shuttles were still being launched. Time flies when you’re having fun, huh?
Anyway, I figured all of that provided a good excuse to revisit the nature of our collaboration, and how we’ve managed to keep from running into traffic (or throwing the other person in front of a bus) even after all this time.
So, anyone else have any anecdotes about collaborating? Uplifting stories or tales of horror? Come on. Let’s see what you’ve got.
