Bummer For Her

I may not have a book published yet, but at least I haven't had a book published and then pulled off the shelves because I plagiarized like her.

Oh my. That is just down right dirty to not only steal someone else's sweat and tears but to go through that big of a lie to have it done.

My mom always said, "I'll trust you until you prove you can't be trusted." That woman should never get another deal.

Hey Mel, we know you're good for it.

Ok, you're bookmarked so, when your other blog is ready to go.....

By the way, nice to see a current picture of you. I just recently gave in and posted one of me after all these years. It wasn't as bad as we'd imagined was it?

better to have never published than to have published and then found plagiarizing!

Seriously, where is the line drawn between plagarism and being inspired by or paying tribute to another person's work? There are always going to be similarities between a person's work and that of those who inspired them. I wish I knew exactly in what way this particular person had plagarized.

Is there anything more bitter/miserable than an unpublished wannabe?

Haal, what are you saying? Are you bitter and miserable and unpublished? Tell us all about it.

I agree with the person who asked where the plagarism line is drawn. If you have a thought, and publish it, but someone else had the same thought years before - does that make it plagerism?

I'm sure the public humiliation has taught the girl her lesson....
