Don’t you hate it when…
You have invested time and muse to create this character of whom you are justly proud and feel this might well be the one who will get you noticed, even if a modest way…..
You innocently browse what’s going on in new books, or media etc
Only to find…….
A successful, well-known, and beloved by many author has created almost the self same character in their latest work……. now on display on many GoodReads, Literary Critic’s Column etc.
Is the central character in a new streaming.
Of course you are entitled to react:
In various ways….
Yet take comfort gentle writer
For if you can come up with something as good as the successful, beloved, etc, etc author, then you must have a pretty cool talent working on there.
Tweak so no one will really notice
Successful, well-known and beloved by many types of authors do it all the time.
