I Need Every One To Listen

I am in a group in which we have to write an idea for a story. I was nominated group leader, but it feels like no one listens to me. Every time I try to make suggestions or I try to correct people, they always get defensive. I have always been a passive person, so this is very hard to deal with. I am trying to tell everyone to listen in the nicest way possible, but no one will listen. I know that if I start to act mean, everyone will start to protest. I am not trying to win them over or anything, I just want some respect so that everyone can get along
