Worst case scenario: we were emailing Word docs around. Changes would be scattered throughout multiple versions, and it would be a huge headache to sort them all out at the end. Best case scenario, we'd work together on a Google Doc, but I HATE google docs. Formatting in them is frustrating, and adding images inline is annoying. The default view, which everyone else seems to prefer has annoyingly large margins, and I found scrolling through pages to be super clunky. I know that there are alternative views, but they are all unappealing to me. Writing does not come naturally to me, and having everything shoved into one unwieldy document was a serious psychological barrier for me.
