Probably fairly good, actually. There are, after all, only seven basic plots in all the universe, with infinite variations.
So it only stands to reason that there should be another book like mine. In fact, statistical probability suggests there should be more than one. I won't push it. Or look for trouble.
The article's an interesting read. Toward the end, it suggests ways for insecure writers (who, me? Nahhh) to personalize their work.
Long before reading this, I actually did include quite a few personal items in Goddess, Awakened. Most of the animals are either former pets or animals we've known. We had a horse for seven years named Triple Power, and he has a cameo role. The border collie/lab named Taz plays a major role and represents our dog Benji, who we loved very much and were heartbroken when we lost him suddenly. But now he lives on in this story, and can once again roam the same barn and fields as Triple Power.
I do believe that sometimes the universe throws ideas into the wind to see who catches them. And maybe more than one person does, in fact, catch them. But what the writer does with the idea makes it unique.
Listen to Neil...
I love the universe and all its quirkiness, don't you?
And though I love my dog Lily, I still miss Benji sometimes. Here's a visual if you read Goddess, Awakened. He was every bit as intuitive and even a little magical.
