Its been brought to my attention that my novel could be seen as a Twilight fanfic, which makes me want to laugh! Yes, I had read Twilight when I started writing it, but it was never a fanfic, not even a little!
It made me think about how people view creativity. I’m not exempt from taking my inspiration from another story, but it seems common practice nowadays to see one or two similarities between two stories and automatically think one was influenced by the other.
Are people not allowed to come up with novels now that aren’t copies of other novels?
