As writers (screenwriters, poets and artists) sometimes we get stuck in the process of creating ideas, forgetting for a moment that even if two novels share an inciting incident they will be inherently different because of the approach of their authors.

Today, I started reading John Lescroart’s  The Fall and discovered this aforementioned similarity with The Cuckoo’s Calling. On reading more I discovered that this tale was unique. Different. Because the story to be told wasn’t ab out a supermodel who had been murdered, but a teenage girl who was looking forward to moving out of a group home.
