Plagiarizing happens, and it shouldn’t

Last night I watched a friend be completely upset over finding out that stuff they wrote be featured somewhere else but not giving her credit for it. The credit was there but not easy to find.
That is plagerizing. Plain and simple. And it is WRONG! How dare you take ideas and thoughts you couldn’t come up with on your own and make it appear to be yours!
If you can’t find something to write about…. Don’t write. Writing should be your thoughts and ideas.. And if your idea comes from somewhere else.. Give them credit for it. They earned it.
That being said… Go read the amazing things my friend writes at Sometimesmagical lend some support to a great writer.
