Collaboration is like any relationship. You give a tiny part of yourself away—in this case, our emotional creativity—and hope it's received with kindness.
It took my writing partner and me a long time to find our way in collaboration, and we went through a similar journey with our editor.
We didn't always see eye to eye, but we each had a mutual respect for the talents and skills each offered.
Sadly, what often happens is that the part of ourselves we share isn't cared for and tossed aside, and we'll be very wary to ever offer it to that person again.
