Working alone doesn’t produce my best work.

The problem is I tend to forget this.

I’ve been working on this book and this book with hundreds of people worldwide, and I was terrified the first time I submitted my writing for feedback.

But nobody laughed at what I handed in.

Instead, my submissions were cajoled and tweaked by our editors, illustrators, and graphic designers, who made the books sing.

A great lesson the next time I assume, “it’s better that I do this alone.”
