Crisp, cool weather and clear blue skies with barely a breath of wind, so another beautiful autumnal day. A surprise given the forecast of snowy weather they’ve been predicting was coming our way. Not that I’m complaining. I’ll take this, and more, go out for a walk too! As I’m late taking this shot, the sun is at the wrong angle against my cluster of trees, upshot, a haloed image. Though maybe, these are sainted trees.
Well, it might feel warmer if we didn’t have a nippy wind blowing out of the north … or snow on its way! Otherwise, it is dry and overcast and we’re expecting rain for later this afternoon prior to that 15-30cm of the wet fluffy stuff. Lovely!
AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AS A WRITER (a primer) 1. IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN What it means: In the Public Domain refers to a work that is no longer protected by copyright law and, therefore, is now available, without fees, to the public. As is the bulk of Arthur Conan Doyle’s, Sherlock Holmes stories and key elements, which have passed into the Public Domain. Meaning, writers are now free to use certain names and key elements in their own works without prior written consent and payment of fees to an estate. How it is mis-used: Many authors are under the mistaken belief that in the Public Domain, is how they should refer to their work(s) offered via a library, online, or as downloadable content. This is not the case. Work(s) available to the public or publicly available can, in some instances, be free, but are usually paid-for works … and therefore, not in the public domain. As in, absolutely free for anyone to do what they want with. 2. FAIR USE What it …
Today reflects the oncoming weather we’re expecting for the weekend. It’s heavy and dark, and threatening rain later this afternoon. It’s fair warm in comparison to the last few days, but that only belies what’s to come: snow! Time to bundle up.
