Create your own Collaborative Book Project

Create your own Collaborative Book Project

Have you always wanted to write a book? Perhaps you have an outline in mind but could not find enough time to write a complete book. What you can do, is collaborate with other writers and pitch your idea to them.

How will you do it?

You can work on a collaborative book with other writers. You can share your idea and maybe let other writers advise you on how to make it better. If more than one writer is working on a book with the same mindset, they could develop something unique and exciting.

After having a brainstorming session, you can decide how other writers will pitch-in in the book. You could assign different chapters to different writers. As one person would only be responsible for one chapter of the book, the time commitment will be greatly reduced, and it would be less tiresome. You can focus on making one chapter perfect rather than worrying about the whole book.

How is this going to help you?

Collaborating with other writers can be a learning experience for you. You could experience working in a diverse environment and with different people. It will help you save time and produce quality content for your book.

It will also help in the publicity of the book. All the writers will share about the book on social media, and their names will be attached to it. It will increase the target audience, and more people will be attracted and interested in buying the book.

A collaborative project might be your ticket to being a published writer.

Some Additional Tips

While signing up for a collaborative book project with other writers, the following are some of the things that you should keep in mind:

  • Have a brainstorming session throughout the writing process, so the work done can be accessed by everyone, and it might also help you in advising each other.
  • Set ground rules for disagreement and feedback processes.
  • Discuss the percentage in writing and ownership of the book.
  • Define your goals for the project.
  • Discuss the fact that if the partnership fails, who would own and complete the work.
