Which Method Is More Successful?
“Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.”
This got us thinking about the dynamics of writing. Solo writing has no fear of bottlenecks (waiting for a response from your co-author) and it has the flexibility to allow you to march to the beat of your own drum unhindered. However, solo writing can lack the creative “two minds are better than one” force of collaboration that may be your ticket to success.
Along those lines, we pitched this question to the EzineArticles Facebook community:
Do you like to write by yourself or do you collaborate?
This sparked an interesting discussion on focus, creativity, and collaboration. The more “creative” the project, the more “collaborative” the preparation and final outcome. However, more reported they found success in focused solo writing than in collaborative writing.
- What are your thoughts?
- Do you prefer collaboration or do you prefer solo writing?
- Have you found more success in either form?
We’d love to hear from you! Please share your answers and more in the comments section of this post.
