It's Copyrighting Day

Apparently it is Copyrighting Day and as a new writer, these things are important (and confusing at the best of times).  My writing buddy from Mills and Boon competition, Sally Quilford has blogged much better than I could about plagiarism and how to avoid it, etc. so I thought it was best to spread the word by sharing her blog post: Copyrighting - Copy Writing.

She offers some great advice.  Some is common sense, but to some new writers (like me) who maybe a little naive we need reminders, and some of the advice you might be thinking... gosh, didn't think of that.

Please read!


  1. Thanks for the link. Good blog. I've wondered somtimes in my fanfics whether I've crossed a line between referencing something for fun (generally Monty Python, Red Dwarf or Terry Pratchett) and just nicking a gag! :D I hope not.

  2. The thing is, that was for fanfic, so you could be a little excused... you weren't making (or trying to) money from it.


I love reading your comments and I will try to reply when I can. Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment.
