And why should you know this tip? Writers often ask me how to add copyright when they start sharing their writing online. Know that as soon as you put your writing to paper, it is copyrighted automatically but it’s proving that you own the writing will come into question.
Could someone still steal your work? Yes, they can, but keep files of your work, and take care to who you share.
My writer’s group often share our work and in the ten years of sharing, no one has plagiarized someone else’s work.
