inspiration is odd

I get inspiration from another work. Fortunately for me, it's an incidental point, or I took an element from the background and said, hmm, what if the exact opposite were true?

So little that it would be impossible to infer what the original was from my work.

BUT -- when I suffer from writer's block, for some reason, reading the original work, however unrelated, sometimes jogs loose that work.

sigh Sometimes the writing life is odd.
