Nothing much to say, I don't really consider myself all that interesting.
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? )

I would like to note: first, anyone wishing to enter the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse should enter via the group.

Second, the IZA is for real-life people only. This is different from most OCTs.

If you want to enter, please read the rules here.

That said, thank you for your interest! We're glad to have you. See you in the Apocalypse!
