    I just started writing my book a few months ago.

    Thought I would be done within months, but so far I only have two chapters written, and they're still in first draft form. Writing is a very humbling experience.

    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.
