Hey everyone I'm kinda new to singwriting and I just had two quick questions, are taking words from stories I enjoy greatly or find good meaning in a form of plagerism? And using the same chord progressions as another band, is that okay? Thanks.

There are only so many possible chord progressions. There are hundreds of songs with G-Em-C-D or C-Am-F-G alone.

Depends on the chord progression. Some are so widely used (C-Ami-F-G) that it isn't going to matter. And finding inspiration in something isn't necesarily plagarizing. Especially if you credit the sources. Some call this "found poetry" or lyrics.

How do I credit Ray Bradbury? Haha
