It’s so easy to want to get caught up in today’s writing trends. The vampire stories made a few people rich, Harry Potter and his gang put the wizards back on the map and the dystopian novels made for great reads that turned into epic movies.
All of this doesn’t mean that you should try to come up with your own versions of these stories.
Be the person that tries to think of something that hasn’t been thought of before (I know sometimes this feels impossible). Write your own unique stories. Stay true to yourself.
