It does seem like there's a lack of collaborators around here. I think Cotter was one of the best collaborators around here. But most people use getting a partner as an excuse not to work.

There is Viv and Bonzo of course.

I've tried it with others but I think I get more satisfaction from doing it myself!Angelic

Personally, I prefer to write alone.
For a partnership to work, the chemistry has to be perfect - the chances of finding a 'blind date' on here are always going to be pretty slim.
Also, I firmly believe you have to be in the same room - so then geography kicks in.

The only time I collaborated was with a journalist on a strip cartoon, and we spent all our time in the pub.

I complained about the lack of collaborators. No one backed me up.

Maybe you should go back to France in 1941.
