They say you are not doing it right when you try to copy somebody, especially in music or acting. Then you get offended for being tagged as a plagiarist. Few of us move ahead and copy something else. They still say you are not good at copying stuff and the cycle continues till you eventually get bored and do something new and honest. But then few of us realize that and also something more before they move ahead. They realize that when you can’t copy something entirely like a machine then you are actually creating something new. Just like your handwriting. Everybody started by copying but in the end everybody has a different, unique and beautiful and if I may say so an original style of handwriting. so to create something palatable but also new ,one needs to copy. But only to an extent and then allow your own prejudices, limitation and likes to shape it.
