Some people think I want to be a lawyer. Others think I want to be a journalist.
In truth, I don’t want to be either. Would I survive as a lawyer or a journalist? Could I be one or the other for the rest of my life? Probably not.
Would I survive as a lawyer or a journalist? Could I be either for the rest of my life? Probably not to both questions.
Am I really that unclear about what I love to do and what I aspire to be?
Maybe I’m giving off the wrong vibes.
Because I’m never writing in a notebook. And I’m never posting on my blogs.
But I am sarcastic.
I’m frustrated and infuriated with several people who decided to copy, steal, and plagiarize my ideas.
If you’re going to use somebody else’s ideas, give them credit. If you can’t give them credit, don’t use their idea.
Don’t claim it as your own.
That’s just wrong.
See I’m okay with people being inspired by others or learning from them. In fact, I am all for it.
Individuals who think it is okay to copy and paste are my problem. It should be obvious that changing one word does not make the idea yours. Changing one word or one line does not magically make you the creator of the work.
To me, the worst kind of stealing is stealing intellectual property.
I guess these imbeciles want to deal with the wrath of a writer. As well as the wrath of someone who has dreamed of being an IP lawyer.
By no means is this an extensive list but these careers are writing related and most will help polish your skills while helping to pay the bills. Until you become a famous author that is.
