    It's been on my bucket list

    since I was twelve. It would be nice to come from from school and work on a novel, but instead I just doodle little sentences and wangsty doggerel. That's a start. But I'm beginning to think I'll never have the commitment nor talent to publish a book.

    I have a great idea. But

    when I started to write, I realized how cliched it was. Some of the stuff in my story looks like the result of plagiarism. I am struggling to come up with original ideas.
