I have been painfully shy and stuck inside myself for a long time, so it doesn't make very much sense, but I have come to realize lately that I find myself most creative and inspired when working with others. I love seeing the result of multiple minds coming together to create something that no one could have expected from the start. I love being surprised by outcomes. I think I learned this about myself from playing a lot of Exquisite Corpse variations with my friends, writing stories together and making paintings on the same canvas. I feel that my creative flow has always been the strongest when my ideas were influencing and being influenced by others' ideas, even though I've spent a lot more time working alone.
