. . . Challenged Your Originality

Posted on Updated on



True originality



Recently, I went to see the movie The Guardians of the Galaxy. It was awesome!


Although in the movie, there was a part that bore a likeness to the orb in my story. At first, it made my heart sink; however, I concluded our stories were not the same.


This has happened to me on several occasions—movies, television shows or books having similar concepts to mine. I am sure it has happened to you too.


Some of us hide our stories away, thinking others will assume we copied them.


In the past, I critically compared my work to other stories. It caused me to wonder if I could ever be taken seriously. But, friends and family members notated the variations and the originality of my stories, which convinced me to continue.


Before you discredit your work take into consideration we all share similar creativeness, but then our stories grow in different directions or have nothing else in common. Don’t let it stop you from writing. Don’t let it discourage you.


Your unique originality is yours. Own it!


Take care, my friends. 🙂

    Such an excellent topic to remind authors of! It’s horrid when writers come across another story with similar themes or events and feel discouraged.

    The chances are, if you look hard enough, you will find other stories similar to your own, but even if we all essentially wrote the same story, those stories would still all be different. It’s a writer’s individual interpretations that make a story special and unique.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
    is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could certainly be
    one of the most beneficial in its niche. Good blog!
