Sure it’s hard to be original, especially when we are surrounded by millions of websites, products, books, and paintings. Maybe there really is nothing new under the sun and it has all been done before, but that’s okay.
We don’t need originality.
We don’t really need that one big idea that no one has ever thought of before. What we need is to hear your voice and your interpretation of these ideas. They say that the magic of a book lies not in the plot, but in the telling. It’s not that the world really needs another zombie story or science fiction epic. What we want is to hear is your unique voice telling your story as it has never been told before.
As the great French writer André Gide once said, “Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.”
