Here’s the thing: It all really has been done. Your original idea is not original. Neither is mine. But that’s not the point.
Wizards were not a new thing when JK Rowling rocked your world. Vampires have been around forever, but Stephenie still made you fall in love with them. The Hunger Games is a lot like Battle Royale. You read about A GAZILLION princess stories before you picked up my book.
All. Been. Done.
But the characters are new. Their reactions are new. The thing that made all these stories special to you were the people inside them. That’s why we get so caught up, because we want them to win or love or just live even. Focus on letting the people in your head be as real as someone you sit next to in class or on a bus or at a movie. Because if they matter to you, if you let them be real, then they will matter to everyone else.
That’s the thing that matters.
To me anyway. :)
hello yes i would like a story with this exact plot but written by someone with more talent and commitment than me
this girl I know posted on facebook that she wanted donuts and more than one guy brought donuts to her house. That’s my dream.
If I ever give you a piece of my creative writing to read, just realize I’ve basically handed you a trophy for earning my ultimate trust and comfort.
