(It is also awsome to write a story with someone else. I once wrote a story with 6 other people.)

I TOTALLY agree with that, I write so much better when there's more than just my brain contributing to the story. That'd be an awesome NaNo...take turns writing 1700 words. ;D
Per person per day. :D

We used to be online at crazy times, each of us contributing 2 or 3 characters at least, and write together. Google docs is great for that. Someone writes and seconds later you see what they wrote. We coordinated turns in writing over MSN, and we had a blast as you never know what the next person is going to write.
Really, it's fracking metal!

it is :-)

Here is a story I wrote with 2 others. The intro is short, to get to know the characters. Chapter 2 and further is written by all 3 authors. "Gillian" is my character. Ashley and Lynne are by one other, and Declan and Buffy by a second other.

The only thing we knew when we started this was that all characters were in a bar (we had picked a real NYC bar, and looked up the floorplan so we knew where everyone was!) and that there would be a guy with a gun (whom I also wrote). Gives you an idea of what happens.

Writing like that is awesome.

I co-write all the time in googledocs with a couple different friends, it really is a great way to write, although quite different.  And I totally know what you mean about "reading" your own story as you write it.  Sometimes, too, I go back and read something I've written and think "wow, that was a really exciting scene, I wonder how the author managed to make it flow so well/managed to think of such a thing" and then I remember oh yeah, I wrote that...gee, where'd that come from? HRH ;D

Writing is an amazing transformative process, and I'm so glad to have other author-type people on here to share it with *hugs everyone* :-*

I don't know, I don't think I'll ever enjoy it. It's difficult and painful and not very rewarding. I can lose myself in drawing, but I never lose myself in writing. :P Some of us just aren't authors. ;)

For me it is someone who writes because there is an inner drive. It is not always fun. I have written parts that made me cry my eyes out. And when I read these things back, I cry again as I feel the pain in there over and again.

An author for me is someone who has to let out something, if not for others then at least for themselves. To open a vein and bring out what is deep inside.

Srane. No one writes without the drive, no matter how bizarre or painful it is.

OME this.  The beginning of my last chapter is just...*whimper* I had to read over the chapter yesterday to check something and I made the mistake of reading it again and...yeah, just really makes me cry.  Made me cry the first time I thought of if, made me cry as I was writing it, will probably continue to make me cry every time I read it ever, it's just... *sigh*  Sometimes there's sadness in people's lives, and characters are still people too!

I just thought there might be some pleasure in it, some satisfaction. I never get that. :P

I don't think Heinlein enjoyed writing at all either....

Yes. It is the worst kind of pain because it is what comes from inside you and then, when you read it, it is sooo confronting and hitting home so deep inside you. I don't know if there is something worse than this kind of pain you inflict on yourself... :-\

The idea is to write so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

It happens. I have written things while I cried and told Eywa "I do NOT want to write that!"

Why I wrote it? It was inside me. Perhaps the release of an old personal pain. An injustice that I had to deal with. But I did it. I am sure that many people who write, authors, writers, pamreltu know that feeling.

And I tell Eywa "I do NOT want to read that." And yet, I do. And I cry. Because it is... siltsan...
