I'm a newbie here (just posted in the intro section), and I'd love some input on my "idea" problem.

I keep a running list of topics/ideas/angles to write about. I have a lot of them, actually - my problem is not in thinking up ideas, my problem is that I'll think I've got some "great angle" or whatnot, then I start to Google it - and realize that my so-called unique idea has been covered. Sometimes, a LOT.

This makes me feel like a deflated party balloon. Dreaming up ideas is easy - finding a "unique angle" is NOT.

Any advice?
