Why do i keep getting messages saying my writings are duplicates, its my original stuff wrote from my mind not anyone elses??
There is a difference between duplication and plagiarism.
If an article appears on two different sites at the same time, that's duplication - it doesn't matter who put them there. So if you have published the same article on another site, that's your problem.
Alternatively, if you are quoting large chunks of text from other people, that can also cause the duplicate warning.
well i havent done either of those things so what do I do just delete my original work or edit it?
If you're getting a duplicate warning for your article and you haven't published it anywhere else online previously and you haven't copied any text from other websites the reason is usually that your Hub is too short, so you're getting a false positive. Hubs should be between 800 and 1,500 words each. Does that fully answer your question?

Yeah, I know - this is my second duplicate that I tried to put up - but the thing is, there is no way I would try to promote what the article is about. I was only trying to be thorough so I got a video, links, amazon...
