I was just talking about originality the other day. The person whom I was speaking with said, ‘It is very hard to strike on a new idea (say for a book). Everything has been done already.’

I said, ‘What about Harry Potter.’

‘Witches, dragons and magic have all been done before,’ he said. ‘J K Rowling just re-invented the wheel when she did it….a high school for witches and wizards – it was a different concept.

Maybe he’s right.
