What is orginality in creative writing?

Original writing is a work that you have invented yourself. Derivative writing is a work that includes characters or settings invented by another author. If your writing is original, you have new ideas and interesting characters. Your imaginary world is fun to visit and the people you have invented in it are the sorts of people that a reader would like to know in person. Don't worry so much about trying to invent "new" plot twists - everything ends up being one of the same basic plot ideas that humans have experienced since we invented language. Instead, try to come up with unique characters who are interesting and believable. Try to write in a style that is fun to read and will keep your readers looking for more of your books. Your style of writing - your voice - is the best way for you to stand out as an original writer.
