  • no! as a mater of fact...until you get paid, that when you become a professional...LOL! silly huh, but that the difference between a hobby & a professional (money). there are a lot of site for writers, freelancers, books, etc on the web. becareful about turning your work over to just anyone & make sure you filed every piece of work with the copyright office. the copyright office sounds scary but do your research off the web first so you are somewhat educated...but this protects your work. Someone else can have the same idea & story line, but written in a different context...it looks & sounds like your owrk, but if the context is written differently, then its not an invasion of your work...so protect yourself from those who will take your work & rewrite it. Good Luck!

  • Absolutely not. You can either be knowledgeable in a certain area, or you can check into your subject and collect various ideas from other areas. shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. I did not just say that.
