After reading other people’s writings from the various blog site’s I follow, I find myself dealing with a twinge of jealousy. ‘Damn, I wish I had said that,’ or ‘Man, that is a line that expresses everything.’
Then I have to return to myself, remembering that I have my own writing-style and that my thoughts are as unique as any of those other writers. Besides, who says I can’t copy a particular line down and re-contextualize it to reflect me.
After all Mark Twain supposed said, “Plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery.”
