After watching Fight Club for the first time last night, I have found it necessary to completely revamp my latest story idea due to an unforeseen glaring similarity to the movie. This has happened to me many times, including the time I was dissuaded from writing about an orphaned character with a scar on his forehead which hurt at the approach of supernatural danger after I discovered Harry Potter. 

The moral of this story: no matter how original your work is, there will always be an Evil Twin out there somewhere, waiting to pour deluges of potential copyright infringements on your Muse’s head.
