Summary

If Emily and Scott can write one more best seller together, the world’s their oyster. But each of them believes they’re the talent....

Emily was an aspiring literary writer, forced to make a living from editing annual reports, when she met Scott, a screenwriter in similar circumstances. With Scott’s punchy plot and Emily’s luminous prose, they crafted an international hit - and fell in love doing it. Three years later, Scott’s own novel has flopped, Emily’s struggling with her literary manuscript, and their relationship is falling apart. Can they overcome their creative differences to produce another masterpiece?

Graeme Simsion is the internationally best-selling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect, The Rosie Result and The Best of Adam Sharp. He lives with Anne Buist, a novelist in her own right and co-author of Two Steps Forward and Two Steps Onward, in Melbourne, Australia.  

This project is a work of fiction; any resemblance to actual persons or events is entirely coincidental. Sort of.

Intelligent, Witty and Fun

I always enjoy Graeme Simsion's work but Creative Differences has a little something extra. As someone who co-writes with their partner, I've never come across fiction that tackles the fun, frustrations and intricacies of the process. I laughed out loud multiple times and nodded emphatically a whole lot more. This is an excellent listen for anyone who wants to wile away a couple of hours in some one else's shoes.

It's was not what I expected from the author.

It started slow, continued better, finished really well.
I really enjoyed the narration.
It's sparce, but thought provoking.

Nice start ...then the profanity.

Not my usual pick, but was drawn in by the performance. Turned it off at the middle, the profanity was a turn off.
