It might arise that we have two or more stories written from the same photo. That is absolutely fine. It’s wonderful to see the different creative output that arises from the same stimulus.
I’ve done many free writing exercises as part of group sessions with Prana Writers and it’s always wonderful to hear how different our creative output is, even when we start with the same inspiration.
I think this phenomenon makes creative people more comfortable about sharing their ideas, too. It seems quite rare that the same idea appeals to two people so much that they would want to spend time working on it. And even if they did, they would almost certainly take it in different directions and use different styles.
At our Prana Writers’ meeting on the weekend we talked about how we were going with writing our stories. We all seem to have chosen different photos to work from. We are feeling some pressure to come out with some really good work.
Enjoy your writing!
