ceiling fans, wiring

o.k. here goes. I have an attic fan and a ceiling fan i am trying to wire off of one power wire. I took the power wire,black and neutral, and split it. One going to one switch the other going to another switch. I hooked the black wire to one side of the switch and came off the other side of the switch with the black wire going to the fan. I tied the neutrals together. Both the attic fan and the ceiling fan are wired this way. Is this the right way to do this? Will this work? The power wires are on either side of the swithc and the neutrals are tied together. Is this right? Is there a problem with me splitting the initial power wire?

What you told us is correct. However, there are still a million other things you could have done wrong. We can't speak to that. Does it work?

the ceiling fan is damaged so we have to take it back. All I have is the wire ran. I have 120 on both spots where the fans are going and the switches work but it is not tested under a load. I will tell you when I get a new fan. Thank You.
