So I'm writing my new book for NaNoWriMo, when I suddenly have a realization.
This book has already been written.
It is called Fahrenheit 451.
That could be a problem.
Thankfully I'm not so far into it that this is a problem, but obviously my plot is going to need some tweaking.
It's quite all right, really. I've already replaced books with another object of mystery. It's a little cliche, but I'm still finding that having an original idea is damn hard. I'm not sure such things exist any more.
So far I'm finding the writing of this novel easier than my first novel. Obviously the experience of having written one probably helps, but I think it also helps to have less of a vested interest. I'm not overly concerned with character names or the plot. I've already killed two people. The object seems to be just to finish the book. Whether it is horrendous or not is of little consequence.
