Is the creative act of writing different from the creative act of photographing?

 “Photography is a foreign language that everybody thinks they know how to speak.” -Philip-Lorca Dicorcia

“What exactly is it that makes the work of a… photographer so much harder given that everybody else also takes photographs? Why do we never hear this kind of complaint from writers? After all, we are also all writers now, the only difference being that the changes in education that made this possible date back a bit further. But you never get to hear writers complaining about how hard it is to write a novel or a non-fiction book given that everybody else can write.”
