I just saw the trailers for the new movie, 2012. I'll be damned if it was not a scene out of the final novel of my chronicles, Le Baton. In the trailer, a man races his home to save his family from he end time destruction, driving them to the landing strip, taking off as the earth engulfs Los Angeles. Wow. In my story, it is New Orleans, along with much of the Midwest which is destroyed, in order to consume Le Baton. In my story, it occurs in 2010. A little different, similar premise. Plagiarism but not.

I have spent the last few years of my life telling a story that has already been told. What was the point? Once again, I come up short with nothing to show for my efforts. It is all pointless.


  1. I think what makes your story different is the characters. Undoubtedly the characters in a book will have more depth than the characters in an action movie.

    I have superheroes in my book. I know it's been done before. Many times. Many successful times. But I feel that my characters and their journey make this a different book.

    So believe in your individuality and the uniqueness of your story.

  2. Thanks Megan. I just had a melt down when I the trailer yesterday.

    Super Heroes? Have you published anything yet? I love superheros!!!
