A fairly serious question, I think. As I understand it, whenever I read fiction it reminds me of some other book I've read that perhaps has no connection to whatever I'm reading. Ideas are recycled, plot devices are overused, etc.
Occasionally, there are also cases where people need to make themselves feel better by cutting and pasting other people's work onto different websites 'cause it makes them feel like they can write. Evidently they can't, or don't think they can, as they've stolen it. Not sure what I mean? Click here.
Mr Elemental Muse, kindly stop being an idiot and write your own fiction for a change.
Darkheart, I kinda look over this board, and I must say, I am deeply sorry for this. I should have noticed something when he said his copy and paste wasn't working (he said he had them in documents, he also has added this up on his forum, Xbox Addict...er it was. Its been removed). Once again, I am deeply sorry about this.
