Writing with others


Many ideas grow better when they are transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up. ~~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Have you had experience writing with a partner?

I must say, for the most part, I work much better on my own. I have co-authored some pieces, but it always seems to work the best if we divide up the work. I don't know if I just like the control of having my own portion of a project, or if I have trouble processing when trying to meld my thoughts with those of another writer. I think it probably boils down to needing to be quiet within myself when I'm writing.

I do, however, like to hear how my ideas grow better after another person lets them rattle around in their brain for a while. It's intriguing when I write one thing and the reader interprets it in a different way or takes it a step or two beyond my thinking.

Isn't that why we write...to give the reader a jumping off point?

Very good point. I am always amazed when two people write a book. I don't why, I guess it's just hard for me to image that two minds can flow on the same thought and it come out beautifully written as it does.

I've co-authored a book, but the other seven writers had certain chapter subjects assigned, so we didn't really share in the writing.

No I have not and can't say I would be able to.

Maybe if the person was there to fix the grammar and weak parts, then yes. But for the concept and application it has to be mine.

I guess I’m too selfish to concede certain part of my story. Maybe if I met the right person, but that’s a maybe…

I think I would probably be better on my own over all. I might want someone to check my writing, but if I were to write more than my blog.. it would have to be on my own.
