Many ideas grow better when they are transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up. ~~ Oliver Wendell HolmesHave 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?
