This past Monday, Greg Schiller wrote a column about macabre humor. Well, I thought so anyway. I left a comment on that column about maggots. That night, I dreamed extensively of maggots. Honestly, it was disturbing so I won't detail it here lest I repel some of you from reading to the end of my column.
Well, I decided to find out how that dream might be interpreted. From scanning several sites, it looked like they'd all copy-and-pasted from one original article. Feh. What kind of writers were they? Copy and paste is for lazy buggers, no?
Okay, maybe it's not. But seriously, when you write here or elsewhere, does most of your content contain copy-and-paste material or do you write original stuff?Â In what situations do you think C&P is acceptable? When isn't it? Tell us in the comment section.
Last week I suggested you quote from a book and use words like whippersnapper for your gwwe prompted post. There weren't many, but the use of the prompts brought out the wild stuff in some of you.Â Read and recommend these (I did):
Granny Speaks by Elsie Duggan
Love is....by Sheila Deeth
Maggotland: where curiosity killed the bug by Susan Budig
