For those who don't know who Jeff Shaara is, he writes historical novels, and his style of writing is that he begins a chapter from the perspective of a historical character. When I was on my walk, I had an idea of writing about the Battle of Kadesh, taking a leaf from Shaara's books by opening up the first chapter with, say, Ramases II; the second chapter the Hittite leader, Muwatalli II; the third from an Egyptian soldier and so on. But...wouldn't this be ripping off of Jeff Shaara? Should I find another way to write this that's not glaringly obvious? That's what I think I should do. Thoughts?
