i like to think my plot is original and then i see stuff like this. (this is PG-13, so be warned.)
and i get discourged, because there are (depending on who you believe) only 7 plots or 30 plots or 65 plots. but that doesn't mean i stop writing. it can't stop any of us. we have to write. it just means we have to find the angle that's different from all the others.
