What are some of the writers you either borrow from or use some of the same writing style. My poems are influenced by Edgar Allan Poe, like my poem Outfoxed, I thought of a delightful British 18th century sounding voice in my head while I was writing it. My stories are influenced by writers like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sir Terry Pratchett. I also get ideas from lines in movies or something in the background that is so unimportant that it can not be considered plagiarism. I have fun doing that. so you tell me now?
