On plagiarism: Are you the same tomato?
As a professional writer, I take plagiarism personally.
I take pride in every work I publish, whether online or offline, whether it’s well-received or ignored completely, because I’ve put my time and my heart in every single one.
If you want to grow in your skill, learn to care. Care for your readers and for what they are searching for. Write for them.
Don’t copy. Don’t rearrange someone else’s work then take credit for it. Don’t be a tomato!
Write in such a way that you are speaking to your readers from what you know. So you need to read and you need to read well. Watch the news. Be aware of your surroundings. Be aware of your industry. Be aware of the world your readers belong to.
The more you really know, the better you will write.
Then you don’t have to copy anyone.
