Collaborative writing can be difficult. Each person needs their own copy of the document, to make changes, but also there needs to be a master copy. “Without a way to track changes we would be erasing our co-workers efforts all day long. Luckily we do not have this problem because we use version control, a method of tracking changes across a wide range of users, and the tool we use is Git.”
Imagine if your editors and beta readers could send for your review through a freely distributed application where each participant can work independently.
