I was waiting, with some anticipation, for that ending. Having this disability requires a crutch, like most others. And you've discovered yours. Guess what? Your "crutch" is not so dissimilar to the ones used by nearly every other writer, whether they need a "crutch" or not. These are simply the "methods" or "processes" of writing that are used by virtually everyone to inspire. Reading and often 'stealing' imagery. And the same is true throughout the arts.
We watch what others do and follow. When possible we are inspired to do something different. But we always "borrow" or "steal" because it is the nature of our game.
