    as he has done before

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) He decided to overcome his grief by writing short stores, as he has done before.

    2) He decided to overcome his grief by being extremely creative, as he has done before.

    '1' seems ambiguous to me.
    Has he written short stories before or has he overcome his grief by writing short stories before?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
