There are many challenges facing Spoof Writers today both social and cultural and the best way to take on this challenge is to work as a team.
Teamwork, however, requires communication and it would appear, from recent Discussion Forum comments, that we have a long way to go.
Therefore, Open Data is the key to our success as a Spoof Writing community. Simply put...we need to communicate openly without angry words if we are to succeed as a true Spoof Community for the benefit of all man- and woman-kind.
We have been writing in a community where ideas are instinctively guarded, some sealed away in locked minds, or computer files, for possible publication sometime in the future.
The irony is, we are writers and should be sharing our stories in order that they may be READ - not locking them away for fear of being plagarized for plagarizim is going to happen anyway, in some shape or form.
It's time we Spoof Writers stopped being afraid.
Write brothers and sisters, write to your heart's content so as not to starve your readers of true, beautiful, original material.
