Speaking of creative writing, I'm thinking about writing an idea I've had bouncing around my head for ages now...

Basically, it's about someone being trained by Death to replace him. I plan on Death being a massive troll, though.

It's a cooking competition called "Around the World in 80 Plates".

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that actually already exists in multiple forms. I can't think of the titles at the moment, but it does.
I'm also writing a story with Death as a character so I looked up all the other Death As A Character stories I could find.

Flora this reminds me of when Boyfriend told me of a comic idea of his and I burst out laughing and told him they already made that and it was called 'Minority Report'.

Anyone remember the episode of family guy when Brian keeps getting shot down by Louis because his book idea was already famously done by another author and turned into a successful movie? Yeah it was that.

Happens to the best of us, mayne.

It could definitely be worse, though.
Jane Yolen wrote a book called Wizard's Hall which has, like, EXACTLY the same plot as Harry Potter...then JK Rowling came along.

Yess. I figured it out when I heard Curtis Stone. I really should pay attention more.

This chick I used to be friends with pitched me an idea for a strip once. She wanted me to do the illustrations for it. It was... em.. very funny in her own head. I thought it was really stupid, but I didn't tell her that because I'm not a meanie mo. Well, not all the time.

I thought that was an "allegedly" sort of deal? Maybe that was a different book about a dude named Henry Potter. I forget.

I remember going on Stephen King's personal website once and he had an FAQ question about having fans submit their works to him for his opinion, and he flat out said no way. Because if he wrote something even vaguely similar in the future that person could claim he stole their concept.

Similar books are fine, even having the same plot lines are fine (assuming it isn't plagerized), but eventually it will be whittled down to the 'better' book.

I once teased Boyfriend about what would happen in the far future when we've finally made all the music there is to be made, will we eventually run out of sounds? Of words? of musical instruments?

Yeah. It's crazy. When you write, and you mention it to anyone, somebody's always like, "Hey, I wrote this thing, can I send it to you?"
And even I'm like, "No, man. No."

My mother and I where the only people who got to read the finalized first copy of my sisters novel, outside of her editor. She made sure I understood to not share any of it elsewhere for that exact reason. Not only was it not finished but for copyright reasons.

For the record, it really was amazing-I sat up for 10 hours the day it arrived in the mail and couldn't put it down.

Which was shocking because I wouldn't have pegged my sister for an author.

One of my biggest dreams is to illustrate the short story I wrote, but that will be years in the making.

This is to all of you. I wish that, collectively, you were called Elenore so this would make more sense.

ILY GUISE.

Emmers, the man is obviously a comic genius. We just can't appreciate this type of highbrow humor. Damn our inferior ladybrains.

I am too preoccupied with tampons and my gushing period to understand jokes about sexual assault. Does anyone need a sandwich?

IN THE BAG
THAT I TAKE TO SCHOOL
EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Freaking out. I had JUST stuck my hand in there when I looked and saw a spider and and and and waaaahhhhh I am NOT touching that bag for another week. I'm gonna go attempt to sleep now...
