Hi there I just had a small question about combating a serious mental block that I've dealt with for some time now. I do realize that this isn't necessarily a 'bad' thing, but it doesn't help to spur creative ideas. I'm finding the only inspiration I'm getting from my writing is from things I've recently watched. These things could be video games, movies, anime and even other books. What my brain is basically doing is taking those creative works and trying to re-brand it. Now I would never move for copyright infringement. Let me provide an example. I just recently finished re-watching an old TV program called Reboot. That series sparked an idea for a very similar concept I could write about but instead of game cubes they journey into Lovecraft realms. the problem is I don't think its different enough to be 'mine' I guess. How do you guys separate your work from that sort of thing?
