Q: Is my story original?

Although all stories are as old as time, the difference that makes them all worthwhile is that fresh eyes write and read them. We fool ourselves into thinking that every story was always told and we can't truly add anything, but the world is constantly changing, and us with it. We are not the same as we were 500 years ago or a millennium. Don't be fooled into thinking we're the same today. Fourty years ago computers took up whole rooms to do a few calculations, now you can find the distance to the moon from a device the size of the palm of your hand. That's an incredible difference.

And I happen to believe that we have more to do than just innovate technology, we have space for new ideas and revolutions in the way we are thinking as a whole. A renaissance of the mind is needed in today's world, so we can go further, deeper, closer to where we should be.

All the stories may have been told before, but we, we are new. We can be more, if we choose to be.


Blood was in the ground. Stale and old, but somehow still pulsing with power to her touch. It teased her, taunted her, fluttering across her senses like a dream.

This was the end.
