That you can't write without someone else? I create worlds, and people-- I do that easily, if I do say so myself. Concepts. Settings.
But I'm shit at plot.
Absolute shit at plot. I can't write plot to save the world. Plot POINTS yes, particularly involving character development or synchronicities between two apparently disparate lines of story. I used to be a horrible spoilermonkey on Fictionpress because of that, nearly always picking out the way a story would twist. General plot, yes. Girl falls into world. Girl is weird. Girl uses weirdness to save world. Huzzah and rejoicing.
But I need someone else to do the writing with me, and my usual cowriter is trying to get jobs and get into grad school.
Or maybe I'm just lazy and I let a few... okay a lot of bad experiences color my perception?
I don't know. All I know is, I can't focus, I haven't finished any prose with a plot in years, and I'm tempted to go back to my beginnings and find someone to write with. ...But would I be so lucky twice?
( I suppose I should mention: my first experience writing prose was writing on my own a series of five storylets, and one unfinished sixth, over the course of a single summer. It was glorious, the most productive I've ever been. I even finished another story that fall. Then I start faltering and failing to write bigger things, so I tried co-writing on the suggestion of a couple Fictionpress friends. And we wrote and FINISHED a weird and epic story, so I started co-writing with another few Fictionpress friends. Some took off for a while, some didn't, and with one friend I created an entire freakin' multiverse over the course of about eight years. After that... where the hell do you go? )
