What do you think are qualities a doer and a writer should have? I'm doing this with my best frien, and we are trying to decide who should be the writer/doer.
For example, the writer should be really technical-minded and good at explaining things
OK, I've coached WIDI at both B and C divisions.
Quick writer and adequate speller.
Attention to detail.
Sense of time (get it all done in 25 minutes)
Able to come up with descriptions of strange things.
Not easily frustrated
Sense of distance and angles
Quick worker with steady hands
Quick reader and good decoder if the writer is less than perfect spelling
Not easily frustrated; able to move on if things don't make sense
Able to concentrate and get it done in 20 minutes
Not easily distracted by other doers in the room
Able to work together to come up with ways to describe things
Trusting that the other is doing his or her best -- this is probably the most important quality.
Enthusiastic (well that goes for all SO events)
WHO DOES WHAT JOB:
Why don't you each write two and do two and I am sure as you discuss how it went, you'll come to the conclusion of who should write and who should do! If one of you have done WIDI before (and I'm guessing not), I find that usually the one with more experience tends to be the better writer as he understands what the doer needs. Of course, this isn't always true.
Best to you!
