Sorry for any errors on the tips & how to pages. I'm doing this fast.

Barter for profit

Look for artists and investors with acceptable parameters. Come up with your own standards for helping out. Some of you are proven book writers, for example, and you can bring your finished works to the meetings. You will know your limits and how much time, effort, skill, experience and talent you will be able to add to the group, ask for the appropriate compensation.

Know your limits

Know when to back out or say no. Remember that you can hold up the progress of the group collaboration.

Some of you might promise something but become unable to deliver. Know when you bit of much more than you can swallow.

As you produce more, ask for more

After your first collaboration, you will be able to ask for more. Show the others what you have been able to produce previously.

This is a career

Keep reminding yourself, you are publishing books, writing books, you may make money from this, you are working towards the collectibility of art that you may eventually produce or possess. This is a career and people want to make money.

Deliver what you promise

You should be ready to not just have verbal agreements, but contracts. These may be legally binding agreements. You must deliver what you promise. The group is there for support, ask for help as needed, and come up with really great projects people will show off.

Look forward to parties and receptions

Each collaborative projects will have receptions. What I am hoping to happen, are receptions at the bookstores, once we all get noticed all over the world. Here is the reason why you should have a book. If all this succeeds and local bookstores showcase our books, you won't be happy if you're an artist, if you decided not to have one. By then your future entry might be too late.

My experience in theater

I started joining theatre groups in the early 90s. I was already a graphic artist for a copy shop, and had just started to write a column for a free monthly community paper. The first project I had with my first theatre group was the poster. I discovered one weakness. Too many cooks spoil the broth. I also noticed that the poster became a bad-looking compromise, because each one of the main collaborators did not want to put in more time than the others. They were holding each other back. I also noticed that people liked meeting each other more than getting themselves to work on the project. Be ware of this. You might not be proud of the finished product. Know when to work with whom and if you are better off working alone.
