what do i do when ive been writing a story, only to find out that it is You?
how do i get rid of you in my language?
Building from others is normal. It's how I started. If the amount is excessive, absorb other materials that have a strong enough mood to compete. Enough influences blended up = a unique voice, as long as you get your own bacteria in it. If you have someone else's freak in you, that means you have something pathetic and needy enough inside to make your own brew. So find that.
