Follow Friday


Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends. This weeks question is:

Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?

No, not really. I think most ideas are a modification of some other idea anyways. Everything is inspired by, or influenced by something. I think that if an author can take it, twist it and make it their own is what matters.

A direct copy of something with minor changes would be a turn off, but otherwise it's all about how the author approaches it.

Happy Weekend!

  2. Hopping through. Yup. The only time I really dislike it is when it's too obviously copied.

  6. It's the direct copies that I've been seeing lately that concern me, but I agree, as long at there is a unique twist, I'm happy!

  7. I agree! I don't mind as long as there seems to be some original thought put into the story.

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
