I don’t know whether to be mad or flattered that someone stole my work. So I’ll be mad, I just found out some one pasted my work and posted it as their own with another name last night. It was painfully obvious the witch who did it didn’t even change the name of the characters nor even a scrap of the plot. It hurt to think that you are so sad and pathetic that you have to go and steal my work or anyone else’s to call yourself a writer. I mean does it make them feel better that people are complimenting them for something that they never thought of in the first place? You must feel so accomplished.

I will say this, how sad for you. There is nothing for you in writing if the story is not yours. I spent months on that plot and story, I spent weeks planning out my character descriptions and it is gone in three seconds of copy and paste. Well that’s what I get for wanting feedback huh? Personally I didn’t think I was that good of a writer to have anyone steal from me. But now I’m questioning what i should do. Should I take down all my work and just write for myself or should I continue to post it and pray that it doesn’t get stolen again? What do you think? I have no idea but I do know I will rewrite that story and change things and go from there. For now it will stay posted and for the world to see. If you feel need to take my ideas then I will say this. How sad for you.
