Plagiarism is stealing large chunks of other people’s copy and is against the law. Reply travellingbag on 15/11/2012 at 7:52 am 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.

Reply travellingbag on 20/11/2012 at 7:42 am I’ve heard that too and think it’s absolutely true. Reply Tahira on 01/12/2012 at 4:21 am Definitely worth the re-blog. Brilliant!
