Buddy up for short story ideas

by Donna Abisso
(Chicago)

Sometimes my sister and I brainstorm short story ideas together on the phone. One of us gets an idea, and then we talk about how the story might go. Sometimes she writes stories with my ideas, or vice-versa. There have even been times when we both end up writing the same story, but each one's version always comes out completely different because we have different styles, so it's interesting to compare afterward.

Really interesting

It's really interesting to me that two people can write from the same prompt (even one that's been discussed) and write two completely different stories. Great tip!

This is a great tip... unfortunately, I don't have anyone to brainstorm with like this. But I wish I did!
