The worst thing I have ever done was listen to people who told me I should share my ideas or snippets online regarding my story work.
There are just so many thieves and if you are not as fast as them they just steal from you constantly and that is very disheartening. I suffer from depression as it is without people literally trying to tear pieces out of my soul as well!
Because to me my creative self is my soul, when you steal from me you are tearing my soul apart like some vicious starved demon!
If you don’t empathise with what I am saying here, then you are not a true creator, you are just a creative thief. If you empathise with what I am saying, then you are a true creator and know exactly what it means to create new content and how much it means to you to be a creative INDIVIDUAL.
I can’t understand people who actively steal from others, they can’t feel fulfilled in themselves – they might have success, they might have money, but they don’t have a soul, do they?
They’ve sold their soul and their individuality if they can do such a thing.
I pity them.
Honestly I do, I pity that they are so ashamed of themselves they don’t want to share their true selves with the world, like I do and like true creatives do.
It’s really sad actually.
This is why, from this point onwards, I will mention my projects by their code names – but I am no longer dropping hints about them at all, other than their genre. I won’t even talk about the amalgam of influence I got for the story either, as that gives away too much!
It’s sad to have to do this too, but I can’t have people taking something precious like this away from me all the time…
Thanks for reading!
