Guessing many bloggers write books
And can relate to having written something then
find that someone else has had the same idea.
I don’t claim to be good at writing
but it is what I love to do.
Last century the first story I wrote was very similar to Stargate SG-1
My “villain” was even called Apophis.
I wrote it in 1995
I didn’t even attempt to set it out for publishing
In 2003 I wrote a sci fi where most of the humans were exterminated by nanites
Then came the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still”
Oh well, King Solomon apparently said that there is nothing new under the sun.
My story was different in that the nanites were programmed to only eliminate humans that way other lifeforms would survive and flourish.
I published a short sci fi story as an E book on Amazon beginning of April 2017:
And then republished it under a different title.
I have been writing the “sequel/prequel” to this and then scrapping it and starting again for some time.
I thought my ideas in this book were original:
It has been pointed out to me – since published – that at least some have been used before.
The idea of transferring ones being into a simulacrum has been used in fiction before but it is also a Wiccan magical technique
which I have never achieved 😛
I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
It is now more than 7.8billion.
and be kind to non humans
