Story creation - some doubt
Hi, I've attempted to write a script for a series, or at least a storyline but everytime i think about something, it starts to sound like one of the other gazillion ones that are already there. When i think about it, it seems nearly impossible to create an 'Original' story containing none or very little aspects that could be similar to any other already existing and published anime/manga/any fiction. So if one wants to make a mark, though it may not be in the actual plot, but how it is presented to the audience right?
This actually is kinda discouraging because whenever I come up with an idea, soon I almost always find out/realize that something like that already exists and that MY idea seems just like a rip off.
So just wanted to know what are your thoughts?Agree/disagree? anything to add?
