comment I'm afraid of [accidental] plagiarism
Thanks for your comments, I'll follow your advice. One more question though - you say "the legal team would double check this". I had the impression that if you sold a screenplay, part of the contract would say "this is my original work, yada yada" and it would be your problem if someone would sue over the script. So it's the studio's responsibility after they buy it?

comment I'm afraid of [accidental] plagiarism
That's an interesting perspective, and you're completely right. I've only recently started writing, so I'm happy to write "something that works" and nothing more - even if it's the same alien invasion story Hollywood always makes. They always make it because it works :) I have no delusions of being an auteur at this point.

comment Plain translation or cultural adaptation?
The point would be getting the interest of an english speaking agent or publisher.

Not yet, but that's the plan if my current attempts end nowhere, as have the previous ones.

comment How do I create a book cover for my self-published book for under $500?
I was considering 99Designs. Why was this answer downvoted? Anyone had bad experiences with them?

Fair enough (and here I add "blah blah blah" to make the comment long enough to post)

comment What does/would it mean to code a novel?
I completely disagree. I took three years to write my first novel, two of which I spent working on the story and the structure (but not writing a single word of the text). I'm pretty sure that counts as "designing" the novel :)
