I'm just wondering, how many of you stress on having an original plot? Right now I'm in the mood to write, but instead I'm making myself sick to my stomach with worry that whatever thing I may write will just be a blatant rip-off of something else already written that I have never heard about before. Thing is, I know that nearly everything that could possibly make sense has been done, yet I keep on trying to find something that hasn't. So I guess my question is, how do you deal with knowing that your work is not 100% original? Right now, I just don't know how to deal with it...I'm fine with my art work not being 100% original, because it has my own style, yet with my writing, I can't get passed this mental blockage, even if I tell myself that my writing has my own flair to it. Sorry if something like this has been discussed before. I ran a search and couldn't find a question *quite* like this.
