I think that in the end I decided to just use my Dropbox account as a common file pool between Windows and Mac partitioned. Seems ridiculous but I think that it is the only truly safe way of working on the same files between the two OS. And of course, no matter what you ever do always have a regularly scheduled backup routine.

There will always be a persistent problem because MS does not want to make HFS+ drivers, and NTFS is proprietary (MS doesn't even have a white paper on it I don't think). Therefore the support in Mac for NTFS is read-only, and the support in Windows to an HFS+ volume is read-only.
$ diskutil list $ sudo mkdir /Volumes/rar $ sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw,force /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/rar # Assuming your NTFS partition is /dev/disk1s1 (according to the diskutil command above). $ sudo touch /Volumes/rar/test.txt $ [ -e /Volumes/rar/test.txt ] && echo 'The volume was mounted read/write!'
$ diskutil info /Volumes/rar $ sudo nano /etc/fstab # Add the following line (not this comment) after the other entries in fstab. UUID=your_volume_uuid_from_the_diskutil_command_above /Volumes/rar ntfs defaults,rw,force 0 2 $ sudo umount /Volumes/rar $ sudo mount -a $ sudo touch /Volumes/rar/test.txt $ [ -e /Volumes/rar/test.txt ] && echo 'The volume was mounted read/write!' $ sudo rm -f /Volumes/rar/test.txt
