You’re Kinda Special, Aren’t You?

In his book “Misery” Stephen King’s protagonist, Paul Sheldon has this reaction to Anne Wilke’s critique to what he’s written (I have to paraphrase because this is from memory)

Sheldon says that Annie has just moved from being loyal reader to merciless editor.

Facebookers are VERY loyal readers, we’ve all been there it’s true.

I posted the following meme where it ended up on a newsfeed with pictures talking cats and dogs, what people were in the midst of eating and arguments about how we would be on the one true path if pink salt was involved.

What I got were comments about what could happen if I did this. That’s right I got legal advice from Facebookers with ZERO legal training who think they know what happens to authors who base characters off of real people.

What they said: It’s against the law

Full stop.

If you do it you will be sued!!!

First off the level of ignorance I pertaining to the laws regarding this issue was hiking to the top of Mount Everest without oxygen tanks breathtaking.

Secondly, I’ve been writing for over 30 years and writing online consistently since around 2006.

I know what I’m doing.

I’ll bring this home now.

Shoot off fireworks after midnight, call me fat and ugly but do not try to mess with my creative process or writing.

Or else

  1. Some have auctioned off the opportunity to be either a victim or villain to benefit a charity. Have to love that thinking!
