Whose story is it anyway?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hey there all,

I'm new to the site. Been enjoying Chuck's stuff for a few years now.

I have a question re writing. If one is working on project with another writer for example the story is one individuals idea but the plotting and actual writing mechanics are done by another who is the writer?

If one thinks that a story can be written better by someone else does one contribute merely to the story itself or risk having the idea lose its potency due to inadequate or poor narrative.

Is it possible to successfully co author work without losing your voice?

Thanks and hope to contribute in some small way to the community.
