I started writing a novel a couple of months ago about a dystopian society in the midst of a war between the government and rebels. and I'm on 10, 793 words. Which is awesome, but now I'm a little discouraged. I just finished the Hunger Games series. It was amazing and thought provoking and probably pretty high on my mental best books list. Like, ever. I'm worried that the genre is overdone, or has been done so well that my novel will never stand up to something of that caliber. I'm also worried that it will be too similar and will seem like I'm trying to imitate the Hunger Games. Do you ever get this feeling of being totally overwhelmed or intimidated? How on earth do you deal with it? Also, what do you think? Is the genre overdone?
