so the quetion this week is do you write alone or do you brainstorm?
I write alone with the sole exception of when I don't. Most times I find I prefer it that way, but there are occasions when I get feedback from a very select group. this has only to do with the fact that, for me, the writing process is a matter of personal taste.
When I collaborate, which I often do, is the exception to that rule, of course.
But mostly it's just me.
Of course, to prove me a liar, I'm working on collaborative projects with two different people right now.
Your mileage may vary.
