Just In Case

Sometimes, y'know, you just feel like a frickin' genius. You get an idea, or a flash of enlightenment comes to you that you're sure no one before you has ever gotten. It's all yours and you hate to share it because someone else might use it and ruin things for you.

But deep inside, you're pretty certain it isn't new—it can't be—that some brilliant writer before you discovered it and did so much more with it than you ever could, and that's why you blog about it in 2nd person. You don't want to be caught thinking too highly of yourself, right? Just in case. But it changes everything for you and, really, that's all that matters.
