Have you ever had an idea or story that you felt was so unique that nobody else in the world could ever come up with the same thing? And then you see your idea on a store shelf or used as a storyline in a TV show or movie only to feel like somebody had to be looking inside your head. What a bummer?
I keep a notebook for invention ideas and use other tools for story ideas, but I swear someone is peeking sometimes. Sometimes it feels like a “doh!” moment, and other times a near crashing blow. Regardless, I’m pressing on. Eventually something will pan out. 🙂
Has this ever happened to you? How did you feel about it?
