I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong category...there didn't seem to be much of a place for it anywhere else. :wink:

I am currently writing a short story with one of my friends, who also has a YWS. If we were to post it, how would we do so? Neither of us want to take credit for the entire thing, but it would be awkward to post it two separate times.

Stay away from limbo bears.
And always have extra marshmallows on hand in case of emergencies.

Last time I did a collab work we just drew straws on who would post it and then wrote "This is a collaberated work between <> and I."
We were born to be amazing.

You can do it Ten's way, or you can create a joint account and say "This is for all collaborations between me and [person]."

I've seen it done both ways. Really, it's just whichever works. Although sticking to one already-known account on the site helps friends find it. (For the joint account, the two guys promoted the work— a lot)
