People seem to be caught up in this if it isn't new and innovative, its not
good idea. Every story has most likely been told. Its the way the stories
told that matters. Take war for instance, that stories been told forever.
Same goes for love, drama, etc. My point is, these stories are the same at
the core element, but each story teller adds their own elements to this core
element to make the core story their own.
