I was reminded today that the work I produce is copyrighted. If anyone is going to use examples of my work, please attribute properly and contacting me would be nice. It is my job to write stories about people and the things affecting lives, and I work very hard at it. It pains me to see content I’ve produced not receiving the proper respect it deserves. Even though this is the internet, the same rules apply.
The internet is not a playground for the real world, it is now where the real world is taking place. As a blanket note, please respect all authors integrity and do the right thing. It means the world for someone like me to be recognized and appreciated for the work I do.
