Fifty Shades of Grey,
the fastest selling paperback of all time,
the storyline based on Twilight.
The BDSM twist in the story
had also been done,
many, MANY times.
The human-vampire-wolf shifter love triangle
the biggest selling series
and the base for Fifty Shades,
had been done many, MANY times
Just because it has been done
doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.
“John Koenig calls it vemödalen.
The fear that you’re doing something
that’s already been done before,
that everything that can be done
has been done.
Just about every
successful initiative and project
starts from a place of replication.
The chances of being fundamentally
out of the box over the top omg original
are close to being zero.”
Your product doesn’t have to be original
to be successful.
