One plus zero equals two!

Creativity is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?! Any writer (and probably most people in most lines of work) can be faced with a  challenge that with a moment’s thought can become and insight.

Recently I was working on a short ghost story; outline was complete and I was ready to start the first draft. I then heard about an opportunity, the only snag was it needed a whole  new piece as a sample that had to be a script. I had nothing to hand so what was I to do as I don’t like to turn down an opportunity?

The answer, which I am sure you have spotted, was to reset the purpose of my outline and turn that into a script. I can then go back and produce the short-story later. One idea turns into two pieces of work. That’s the kind of mathematics I like!

Have you any similar experiences?
