“Good Writers Borrow; Great Writers Steal.”


  1. There is a difference between plagiarism and re-inventing topics in your own words. Plagiarism is stealing large chunks of other people’s copy and is against the law.

    • Oh dear, we are getting serious this morning aren’t we? Don’t worry though, should I ever get caught ‘stealing’ something from life, art or nature that inspires me and converting that inspiration into words, I’ll be ready to defend myself.

  2. My fourth grade art teacher said something that has stuck with me all these years: “Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.”

    Love it!

    • I’ve heard that too and think it’s absolutely true.

  3. Definitely worth the re-blog. Brilliant!
