I like people. I really do. And I like to collaborate, but I don't think the group blogging thing is for me. Unless it's just one of those things were assignments are divvied up and you don't have to actually "write " together. You know, come to a consensus about how the actual words are going to flow. I can contribute. I can collaborate on ideas. I can write my portion. I can edit. I can offer my advice. I can even produce a first draft and allow others to take over to complete. But to sit down with like a writing partner and go over word for word what we're going to write? Uhh. No.
Organically I am a solitary creative. I like being in a creative environment where people bounce ideas off of each other. It can be educational and inspirational being around others who are like minded. I obviously love talking and connecting with others (even if it is online in the privacy of my own home), but group writing projects - especially long term - ugh!
People stress me out too much!!! Where writing is concerned I need to be by my lonesome self for the most part. If you want me to add something to the mix, give me a little bit of something to do...hey give me a call. But anything more than that doesn't appeal to me.
I know there is an exception to every rule. I just haven't found it yet.
