3. Collaborative Writing: Collaborative writing exercises, as you’ve mentioned, can be helpful. It allows each identity to express themselves and share their unique perspectives.
Corey: Usually I do the writing, but it is a shared venture. For example Kelsie does quite a bit, and where the real work comes in is the work completed by the editors within the system. This includes Kate, Jamie, Ayn, Jesse and others … certainly Marie. It is a matter of asking a question or looking at at sentence, and then people decide if it stands on its own or whether it has to be adapted. It is really a team effort. I don’t want to take all the credit.
Kate: Don’t let Corey get by with that … she is our writing pro!
Ayn: I think writing more than anything else we do helps allow the most of us to take voice in our life. Different parts are encouraged to speak through others that have a more defined standing … such as younger parts speaking through the Casies. Marie is the most prolific in reality iin that a lot of questions are asked of her, and she can express the thoughts of many. She is like a medium for Corey and is much appreciated for holding our life together as if one.
