Have been out of town – journaling

I’ve been visiting family in Arizona so I haven’t been on much nor doing any writing. To make up for my lack of productivity, I’ve been vigorously writing down anything anyone says that’s funny or interesting, with the hopes of one day using it in a story and pretending I came up with it. Ok, kidding on that last part (maybe).

Word of caution to blog authors

Here’s a link to a blog post on Pub Rants that you should read.  Basically, if you’re using pictures on your blog that are copyrighted you can be sued.  No-brainer right? Not if you think you know what “fair use” is and you don’t.
