Co-Authoring & Editing: Two Heads are Better than One

I know Nikki and I have been telling you about how great the co-authoring process can be & sharing our steps for the process.  And at this very minute, you might be co-NaNo-ing for all I know.  But if you're not...

SERIOUSLY -  what are you waiting for?

I must admit that I'm a little in throes of editing a book that I'm finding myself more and more enamored with, but entrenching ourselves in edits hasn't been the least bit painful.  In fact, it's gotten to the point where I don't want to stop reading my own book.  How often does that happen?

AND HERE'S WHY (I think) -- I only wrote half of it.  And sometimes I can't even tell which parts I wrote and which parts Nikki wrote.  (I mean sure, if I think about it hard enough I can figure it out, but it all seems so fresh & new as I'm going over it again.)  Editing is FUN!  You hear me? FUN!!
 The other part that has been so awesome is seeing the plot twists in the story that work so well and knowing with unwavering certainty that I wouldn't have thought them up myself.  We've both left our mark on the story and it feels great.

Ok - I'm done gushing now.  Thanks for dropping by!

I wish I could have that sort of experience....

I'll live vicariously through you for now.
