Tips on Tuesday – Sign It

Today’s Tip

Sometimes my mind is a sieve… not like a sieve… it is an actual sieve… For example, I recently found a poem in one of my notebooks — don’t know where it is now — but it was in my hand writing with my editing scribbles on it.

I read it and really liked it. I assumed I had written it. I don’t copy poems, so I had to have made it up. But, because it was good, I doubted I had written it. Consequently, I didn’t use it or show it to anyone at the time.

That day taught me a lesson. Not only should you sign your work to protect it as yours, but you should sign it to remember that it is yours.

Since that day, I sign all my work when I do it… writing, painting, whatever… just in case I run into it in a file or notebook some day and can’t remember if it’s mine or not.

So that’s my tip to you:  Always sign (or at least initial) everything you create….
