Hi there, Brand new to the forums and to be honest, a brand new writer. Well not really, I've previously tried writing and got 30 pages in or so on more than one occasion and gave up. After starting to read Creative Writing For Dummies they say that one of the biggest reasons people give up is because they don't use the writing strategy that works for them(whether you're a seat of the pants writer, write and edit, outliner, etc...) But I digress. I want to do this right this time and i'm working on a full length outline. Anyways, I've always had a fascination with mazes and my story revolves around a deadly maze. The problem is, and those of you who have read James Dashner's series Maze Runner know where I'm going with this, I am worried because this story happens in a maze and so does the first book in his series. Now the premise and the reasons behind the maze don't have any similarities but I'm worried that because they both happen in a maze I will be crossing a plagiarism line in terms of the central location of the book. I know that there are many books that happen to take place on boats or in New York City, for example, but this feels different and a maze seems like such a specific location, even if it isn't the same maze. Should I just forget the idea altogether?
