The first question my writing partner Angie and I are often asked is: how do you write the story?
It took as many years to figure out that process.
Our first story was a rewrite of one I had written. The next one was one we planned, sat in a room, and worked out each scene together.
We started writing separately when we moved away from screenplays and into books. Angie wrote the first half, I wrote the second, and we edited each other.
But we continue to refine the process. Now we meet daily and discuss what's going on. When we finish our current book, we will change our process again.
Everyone has their own process, and they're all correct—that is until it isn't, and you need to refine it again.
There are no shortcuts. There is trial and error and doing it again and again.
Figuring out your story is important, but figuring out how to write is even more so.
