A novel idea....
I Have a blog and facebook group for a conceptual idea for a series of books. I'm in Australia, and looking for some direction. I'm not a writer, more an "idea guy"....how can I push this idea further? lots have shown interest in the idea, how do I copywrite and claim it as my own?
How do you copyright? you already have! Anything you write is copywritten from the moment you write or type it. This includes love letters or to do lists. No joke.
If you're worried that someone might take it and claim it as their own, though, then what you need to do is make a definite copy with a start date on it. A word document on your computer that you've got backed up etc.
Ideas in themselves are not copyrightable. If I say "I have this idea for a story set in space" 2 things you need to know. 1 This does not copywright the whole space genre!
and 2, if you think it's good enough to take off then pay a writer. If you're just "an idea person" then your idea will never get off the ground without one, so it will be a worthwhile investment
Thanks very much for the quick response...it was what i thought, and I did send back up for my proposal too two other people, just in case...
The idea itself has already paid dividends, I have been asked to co-write a chapter in a forthcoming book....with an idea similar to what I'm interested in exploring...so I'm making a tentative start....just want to build my own foundation, also...
Will look into local writers....thanks very much...

Some of us already write on a variety of topics. I think it would be interesting to see how writing on a single topic affects our stats & scores.So I'm starting the 14 hubs in 14 days (2 weeks) challenge for niche writing. I'll have to get back to you on the topic I'm picking ...

Ok, so, I've started this post several times over the last few weeks and keep deleting it. Maybe this time I'll get to the end and leave it up.I'm going to be writing another novel this summer (my fourth). I've been working on the idea for a few years, and the last piece fell into place...
