Why are you so reluctant to try it alone ?

I did try. It ended horribly, with me feeling even more suicidal. Both because I was alone, and because what I wrote was so awful. :(

You should keep on plugging away at it... Writing is notoriously difficult to do... Loads of people would like to be a writer but its so hard to break through... I guess the secret is to enjoy the writing part.. Don't focus so much on being successful at it....

I still can't stand being alone. And I'm not looking for money or fame, at all, but if the story will be shit, why bother writing it?

You've got to believe in yourself more... look at Fifty Shades of Grey or Harry Potter... they're both shit but the masses loved 'em

They're far better than anything I could make. And I told you, I'm not interested in money or fame. I'm only interested in telling the story the best it can be, and not being lonely.

who is to say what is good or bad ? and why do you think co-writing will help you feel less alone ?

Because co-writing, by its very nature, is a collaborative process. Which means the opposite of being alone.

There's a million and one things you can do with a partner.. Some of them allot more satisfying than writing a book. Which do you want more.. To write a book or not be alone ? I think you are being too specific.. You gotta meet the God's half way

So, basically, my entire reason for living will never happen :(

Never say never... But maybe you could shoot a bit lower in the mean time.. Something more easily obtainable.. We all have our dreams that go unfulfilled (believe me)....you end up having to make the best of what you can get.. Its the difference between your 'wants' and 'needs'... Learn to settle.. I suppose.

No one is saying it'll never happen.. You just got to figure out a way to live without it until it does
