Does Anyone Else Notice

Lots of people post articles that they admit are not theirs. Earlier I saw one that said “I saw this somewhere else and I wanted to share it with all of you”. I thought the whole point of blogs and articles was so that you can share “your” own opinion of things? I think a lot of the things posted are really good, but if you do not write it, then it isn’t yours.

I don’t read things off the net normally. I buy books from bookstores and read them the old fashioned way. I sit down with a notebook and a highlighter. I read a section that I wish to study; I highlight the information I find useful to remember. I then write it down in my notebook (take notes) and continue till I have 2 or 3 pages of notes. I then grab a different book and read about the same subject. I take notes off that book as well, and continue through 5 to 10 different books. Once I am all done taking notes I then grab my second notebook that I write rough drafts in… I read over my notes and compare them to my own personal feelings and thoughts. I then start my rough draft using my notes and my feelings and turn them into my own artwork (writing). Once I write a rough draft I then go to the computer and type up my hand written draft, I do this cause often I leave out some of my opinions or feelings and by writing it a 3rd time I catch those missed fragments.

It has been a wonderful learning tool… I have a horrible memory and is part of the reason I left school. By reading it, highlighting it, taking notes, a rough draft, and then a final draft, it makes me read and think about the information five times instead of just the usual one. By the time I write the final draft I normally don’t even have to read it cause I have memorized the information already and can sit and literally recall most information like someone with a photographic memory.

It takes time, effort, and work, but not only does it benefit yourself, it benefits others as well. I have been able to help a lot of my “real life” friends through some relationship issues.

I just figured I would mention it, AdultFriendFinder is strict about copyright violations and copying things off websites or books is a violation of their terms of use. I am sure they and many of us here would rather know your personal opinion about something then we would to know something you have “cut and pasted”. (Taking notes from 2,3,4 or 5 sources and then writing an article about what you have learned and read is not a violation of copyright laws. It is the same method teacher’s use for students in schools. Just make sure that you do not copy any words). Books are still more reliable then a lot of what you may find on the Internet. For instance…. The average male penis is 4 to 6 inches in length, a lot of websites claim it is 6,7 or 8. They do this because they are trying to get you to buy a penis enlargement agent and in order to get you to buy it they have to lie to you. They make you think that there is something wrong with you when there actually is not.

Those of us who read about sex and people’s articles do it for fun; it isn’t fun though if it is not your own creation. I am sure many other people can back me up on this. Writing to me is a form of artwork and is a direct passage to your thoughts (meaning your mind). I personally like knowing how other people and myself think. Does anyone else read writings for the same reason? That is the point of literature isn’t it?

Well I am glad that there are a few people that agree

I totally agree with what you said about how you read about sex and other articles for fun. I like to turn the men I am attracted to on by creating fantasies and have them email back their opinions and sometimes we create together. It is totally from my experiences and imagination and it can add a lot of spice to a friendship. That is part of the sexual turn on for me. Knowing they are reading my words and getting excited by something I have created totally for them. If I used someone elses words or thoughts, it would take the excitement and creativity away from it.
