What do you when you want to write something similar to what has already been written.
I started writing a story back in winter of 2014, a few months prior to the release of Station Eleven. This summer I’ve been reading Station Eleven on and off — partly out of discouragement at seeing the similarities it has with my story, and partly because I switch between books like my dad switches channels during TV programs.
Should I stop working on my story because of this. I don’t think so. I see this as a way to encourage me to make my story better and makes me certain that I should turn the story into a play.
