I agree that much of the time, people can be very draining and unhelpful, but sometimes, when you talk to them about your ideas, that can create more drive and inspiration as well. Like DaFool said, they can cheer you on by showing interest. Or they can provide helpful critique.
I agree, working with a lot of people is more risky than doing it alone. When you work on a project by yourself, there's little to no pressure, you don't have to rely on anyone, and there's just more freedom.Wright1000 wrote: So, I think the best way (at least for beginners) is to work alone.
I don't mean completely alone. Having one or two other people is not a bad idea.
But, if you are a beginner, and on your first project, you start looking for artists, programmers, proofreaders, co-writers, colorists, editors and everything, I don't think your project will ever be completed.
Sorry for butting in, just my thoughts.
And sorry if I just lengthened the off-topicness... D:
