The posts here are authored by both Sandrine Baptiste and Rhonda Tremaine. Well, how does that work?
Co-authorships are notoriously fraught with issues. Who should be a co-author of a document? Who is the idea person? Who is the writer? Where does one mind end and the other begin? Well, part of our message is attached to our writing process where we collaborate effortlessly, something we developed ourselves with no instruction other than our intuition. We had little hesitation about going forward with this, and most importantly there have been no jealousies and no major roadblocks, and surprisingly a lack of ego involvement. When we collaborate, we collaborate. Two bodies, one mind.
Although we each have different ideas, we trust the other’s creative process, leading to a final product that we are both proud of and want to promote. Unlike anything else we have done in the past, we don’t think “what’s in it for me?” It’s all about us, what we can achieve, and what we can give to the world, but that does not mean that we have turned all our attention to this effort. We each have our own creative and business interests that are independent, and these other ventures are perhaps a bit egocentric. But what we produce together—in our books, in this blog—is something that defines the statement “the medium is the message.” How we produce our blog posts is as important as the posts themselves.
