"One of the surest tests [of the superiority or inferiority of a poet] is the way in which a poet borrows. Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different than that from which it is torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion."

-T.S.Elliot

Let's all be good thieves together.

Associated Content

Well I've taken the plunge and submitted my first article to Associated Content, for amusement rather than any hope of financial gain, it's called Sex and the Story and covers my thoughts on the use of sex in creative writing. The article is currently awaiting approval but I've already started typing out another one as well as begun to write Spectral Exile. I'm going to take my time with this story and try to add more spit and shine to it than I did Halloween Girl, I might even throw it up on Associated Content as well as the blog if I'm happy enough with it, though I doubt that I will as despite the kind feedback I know my work has a long way to go yet before it's ready for wider viewing.

Leave my titles alone you fucking loser. Get your own fucking titles you goddamn plagiarizing faggot. Why go after my titles and use the names as your own?

SPECTRAL EXILE is not your title to fuck with as you may. GET YOUR OWN FUCKING IDEAS AND TITLES -- do I have to spell that out to you unless you got fucked in the ass by your dead mother a few times. DON'T FUCK WITH ME FAGGOT. I will put you in the ground like they did with Shepard.

Do you honestly think you can kill me over the internet Nicky? Oh we're going to have some fun now my little dumpling. I'm currently working on Tabloid Purposes: Sex! Sex! Sex! but since you seem so eager to read my interpretations of your work I'll get started on them again once I'm done.

Leave Tabloid Purposes alone you little fuck. Get your own damn titles and ideas you fucking loser. You're just pissed off because I kicked you in the head by using the new edits of The Fandom Writer.

Tabloid Purposes is my baby you little asshole. You can't come up with ideas that are entirely your own or concepts that are entirely your own -- therefore you're a glorified fanfiction writer.

Grow some fucking balls and write stories with your own titles little boy. Don't even touch my titles with your shitty little works.

I am wiling to bet you can't come up with a scary story that's true.

Are you off your meds again Nicky? You can't "kick me in the head" with your little story because a) I can differentiate between fantasy and real life, b) no one who reads it would ever realise it was taking a jab at me, and c) it's a bloody joke of a story. It'll take more than a masturbatory fantasy about people you don't like being tormented to upset me snookums.
