Honesty means you may have to actually work
The morality of honesty is seriously lacking in some folks. It’s not okay to take others written work and claim as your own.
The practice of using software that spins articles only leaves the thief looking foolish. The article is difficult to read and with what appears to be serious grammar errors.
You read it over and wonder what they are saying. Maybe a typo, but when it keeps coming up the only conclusion, must be stolen.
Justifying being a thief
This reminds me of a person years ago that was so adamant he never stole from stores. His defense was he only changed the price tags!
I am sure he never took a higher price tag and put it on a cheaper item. Yet in his warped mind of reasoning he wasn’t stealing!
Because of dishonest people, we now have “perforated hard to remove tags” on our products.
All written work is copyrighted by law (exceptions*)
Unscrupulous folks who take writers articles, change a few words then call themselves authors live a lie. Living a lie can eat at your soul. Are they happy, or do they ever wonder why their lives are a mess?
Would they steal from their grandmother or their kid’s piggy banks? No doubt if they needed the money.
When you write from the heart that glimmer of enthusiasm can never be created any other way. A passion in the words constructed on the page will flow.
You can embrace the emotion, the sparkle and shine in the author’s eyes as you read the words.
With integrity you will write your own words. You will take pride in what you do and no one can ever take that away from you.
Taking ideas is not the same as stealing
People will always borrow from what you write and what you say. We all learn from each other. It only becomes a problem when they copy word for word your content.
The unfortunate part, others can steal your hard work. You have a choice of holding your writing close, which no one will ever read. Give it to the world and people could steal it.
You are the creator and no one can ever take that from you, no one!
