    I’m not sure how to go about explaining this, but I feel like every author has their scenes or characters that people could easily identify as theirs. Roald Dahl has plenty of anthropomorphism, for example. Neil Gaiman has whimsical settings.

    Right now I’m struggling because I’m a third of the way through a book, and I didn’t think it was at all like a book I’d written before. But then I realized that in both books a boy is kidnapped and in both books there are little unseen creatures that are integral to the plot. Both boys are stolen for different reasons, and both creatures are different in their entirety. The only similarity is they’re small. Is this too similar a theme to have across multiple novels?

    Or is this a writer trait, and you all can find similarities in your own writing too?
