Who was it that said . . .“Good artist copy, great artists steal . . . or . . . Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.”
Whoever they were, the ideas were two sides of the same coin.
Take a story and recreate it with your own ideas.
Isn’t this the true essence of storytelling?
There is only a handful of original stories in the world? Everything else is simply retelling?
There are just some stories I never tire of hearing, movies that never get old, and books I read again and again. And again . . .
They inspire me and jump start my creativity until I can’t help stopping to daydream about all of the what if moment, maybe if scenes, and the what I imagine happens after the author’s The End.
These authors and stories never fail to inspire me. These movies I can watch again and again.
Reason why I keep them on my desktop. Inspiration on those rainy days.
