So I'm making progress in my own book (plotting it) and I'm realizing it fits the pattern with many other books (stories) and while I find it's unique, I can't see why anyone else would want to read it and actually enjoy it and not just say, "This is just like every other story I've read," and slam the book down in disappointment and realize they just wasted 8 hours of their life. I mean, all stories follow the same pattern: something happens, they deal with it and fail and succeed, and then a climax happens and a resolution is reached; everyone is just reading and watching these stories for the same effect: the climax and sense of purpose and meaning in life. Isn't that all what we're really doing when trying to write a story - just trying to recreate that same effect for a reader who has seen it all before? What are we doing that's going to be different for them this time or do they care? Why would anyone care about my story if it's just like every other. It can't be this easy can it?
