OP isn't clear on that, 14. If you take the name used on this FML (WritesTooWell) into account, it's entirely possible that he or she feels that a better grade was deserved and that the instructor believed the myth was not original due to the quality of writing. That's how I read it, but I could be completely wrong.
#40, i had something similar happen, and i named it "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia", which is an album by Dimmu Borgir. he looked it up. and the next day, the first thing my teacher said in class was "How the hell did you end up listening to Norwegian black metal??" it was rather amusing to explain my tastes in music.
well on the bright side you must be an amazing writer if you're teacher thinks you copied, and good luck with your book!
Something kind of similar happened to me when I was 5. My elementary school had a creative writing competition for the school's newsletter. I won, beating out every kid that tried, and my story was published. But it took my mom a week to prove that I did, in fact, write the story all by myself. It sucks when you put in a ton of effort just to be shot down and questioned.
Ugh, I'm a writer as well and I hate coming up with what seems like a genius idea at the time and finding out that someone else beat me to publishing it. But it's even worse for someone to think you copied something that didn't even exist before you came up with it because you have barely any proof that it's actually original.
51: Being a writer myself, I think that's the dilemma of all new authors: coming up with something that is at least original enough to be called your own without being accused of plagiarism. It's like the whole "Simpsons did it" thing. There's not a whole lot out there that HASN'T been done in some way before.
It is possible to independently come up with the same idea as another person. I would ask the teacher which myth they were referring to, to see if that indeed happened.
It happened to me, expect in my case they failed me because they could not believe I didn't stole it. I confronted the teacher and principal of the school and the owner of all the schools from this company. They couldn't prove it, they even tested me very specifically from every word and they had to agree with me. I fought my way to straight A++ and from now on I had easier life on almost every class during my time at school.
I had this happened to me in my senior year. I did my senior report on my medical condition, I wrote from my own experience and who knows it better than me, since I live it. The dushe bag put a zero on my paper for plagiarizing... I took my paper to my principal and complained, turns out the teacher just wanted to give me a hard time. Op talk to someone about your grade, and prove its your work
