If Other Writers or Agents Read Your Work They Will Steal It
I used to worry like crazy that if someone read my work, they would see my brilliant idea and think, ah ha, that’s a great idea, I’m going to write a book just like that. For the most part I’ve let go of that idea. While obviously no one can write the same story I would, or even really steal my plots, there are a few things I like to keep close to the vest. Because let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than having a flash of brilliance and then seeing it show up in someone else’s book, even if you never made your idea public.
Anyway, I’ve gotten over the idea that people are going to steal my ideas.
Do you ever worry that someone will steal your ideas and use them in their books? Have you ever found your sparks of brilliance in someone else’s published book?.
