I am the one, again that is writing the book. If i put that my main characters were in a one thousand and ten year sleep, would that be copying you? I am so sorry that i keep asking these questions. They just keep being brought to my attention. I would never want to copy anyones work.

Greg responds...

Seriously... stop asking.

On the one hand, I'm absolutely not the first writer to put a character to sleep for a long period of time. (Rip Van Winkle ring any bells?)

But if you're close enough to my work that you feel the need to check if you're too close to my work, then the odds are you are too close to my work.

So stop asking. If you feel you're doing something original, go for it. If you don't don't.
