My boyfriend and I write fiction together. I've been writing since I was ten, but for the past eight years he's been my writing partner and editor. The process can be volatile, but creating work together brings a lot of meaning to our lives.
I've heard writers say their books are like their babies. That always sounded creepy to me, even though it's sort of true. We both put so much of ourselves into all of our different characters that it's like they share our genes.
