Conclusion

It was fun to collaborate in a group and I learned a lot about other people's point-of-views in general about life just by listening to what each of them contributed to the group. I would say that in a group there is always one person who becomes the implied leader, but this did not happen in our group. Everyone's opinion was important and was taken into consideration before making important decisions about scenes and presentation. The hardest part was editing: contributing our different scenes and making them into one long play was challenging. I had to cut down a lot of things in my scene because it was the one which wrapped the whole play up. I had to alter the details some, and others did the same so the play will run smoothly. All in all, it was a very different experience and brought it some of my writing skills that I was unaware of. I have written some poetry in another language, but it was totally different to write dialogues for someone. I did not come up with the lead character, so I was doing my best to portray what I thought of the character. ...read more.
