I wanted to quote Erin this morning, because I too have had this happen since our discussion! And it does tend to freak you out!
Erin Quinn "Not so much a style influence, but I've had issues where my ideas brush against someone else's --and that freaks me out."

A friend commented on another friend's post on fb a comment that I had already written in the 2nd chapter of my book. And just yesterday I was reading an article on Yahoo about how people meet and I thought, NO WAY! because one of the couples met basically the same way my hero and heroine met! Now that's freaky!
Have you ever encountered this with your writing?
