...and so you're busily writing away with a fantastic idea and then you go to the pictures. Turns out the latest blockbuster is about exactly what you've been writing about. Okay so your idea is totally different, and possibly features a blancmange eating ocotpus, but the whole fascinating basis is the same thing. Do you continue? Do you worry you're ripping off a movie, even though you started months before you read about it? Do you finish and acknoledge the film as an inspiration? Seems whenever I find someting really interesting that hasn't been done the movies beat me to it. Maybe I could finish one of my works sooner I might beat them at this little game. Hmmm.
