Discussion: collaborating. Do you co-write fics? work with artists or make art for others? work with beta/cheerleader? Do you prefer to work alone?

I didn't really have time to write today, but I managed a bit on my commute, so that's good.

I never co-wrote anything. I love having someone to talk ideas through, for cheerleading and beta-ing. I've done art and received art for big bangs. I fairly often write completely on my own though, at least when I write in my native language – mostly because of time-constraints of potential betas and cheerleaders.

About 1,500 words, but that's a lot more than I've managed in the past month and a half. I'll take it as progress.

I've collaborated before, especially in co-writing, but that's tricky business. Co-writers seem to inevitably flake out or disappear. :-( It's disheartening.

I'm not getting any writing done at all, which is discouraging. There's just too much else going on that demands my attention!

I generally prefer to work alone, but in the past I have done some co-writing (by participating in round robin story, which was actually quite fun and challenging). I also did a big bang which involved working with an artist, and I also had a cheerleader for that big bang. I used to work with a beta extensively, but she got too busy and I found I did fine without one. I do have people I can fall back on if I need advice, but I generally go it alone these days.
