"The Eye is not lost; it turns up again in an unlikely place" - Where have I heard something simliar like that before?
Where Taz? I will tell you if my story differs substantially.
It was not found by a slimy little creature with homosidal tendancies nor does it end up in the possession of a well-to-do, exceptionally short person with hairy feet.
But others who have read the overview of my novel have (on the surface) critisized it for lacking in originality. They could be right! But I think I will continue with the project anyway and see how it turns out. :) It is, after all, my first novel.
