One of the best ways to break into the entertainment industry is to create your own content. What could be better than generating work with a partner!? While you have to split the credit and the income, the benefits of forming a writing partnership far outweigh a few percentage points! A writing partner has your back, provides a second opinion and splits the work. WIN WIN! If I haven’t convinced you yet here are a few more reasons why you should be finding a creative partner today!
1. Writing can be lonely! Make the creative experience fun and collaborative. Many well known and accomplished writers swear by working with a partner as it offers companionship. They know their counterparts keep them focused and productive. Writing solo can often be met with writers block or an endless stream of time-wasters. A partnership holds you accountable.
2. Two heads are better than one. We already know how creative and talented you are. Imagine that times 2! A writing partner is someone you can bounce ideas off of and find inspiration. Brainstorming ideas alone will seem far less daunting when you have someone by your side who is also sharing their thoughts.
3. You will be a better writer. A partnership creates a system of checks and balances. You can get feedback on sentence structure, tone, spelling, story consistency, etc. A partner is there to encourage and also keep you in line.
