We're In This Together

Oooh. Yesterday morning I woke early-early and worked on a story for/with a friend. It's sort of a collaboration thing. She has a great historical nugget, and I put it in my words. If I do say so my own self, it is beautiful.

We have some kinks to work out, and some details to process (kind of like any time anyone writes anything) and it's different doing it together. There are some details that I think should be different, but we'll work it out.

I read it out loud to Husband when he got home from morning basketball, and I choked up a little. That is something that I don't do every day. Especially about words I wrote myself. Isn't that fun?

So, the thing is that collaboration can work. And I am excited to do it, especially with this brilliant friend who has such an ear for a perfect story. I'll keep you in the loop...


  1. So last night I wrote a column and read it out loud to the man (which I never do) and laughed my head off at myself. We must be good if we can make ourselves emote.

  2. Wow, what an incredible confirmation that must be that you're working on something worthwhile!

  3. Way to go! Collaborating can be difficult and I'm glad to hear you're having so much fun!


If you want to say it, I want to hear it. Bring it on.
