The number one question I get from people about #TMP is usually along the lines of “Your posts are very interesting, where do you copy them from?”. I have even been accused of plagiarism every now and then. (The second question is what robot handles posting the articles in the morning?)
I do not know why people do not seem to believe I am capable of writing the things I write. I do not see any big deal at all. A #TMP reader and her boyfriend even had an argument in which the well read dude proceeded to compare various #TMP articles with his library, looking for similarities, while his girlfriend who knew me very well stood her ground that Mr. Morebise doesn’t steal articles from books.
So, in this post I would like to announce to the whole world where I steal my articles from.
Consider Job 32: 6-8 (NLT)
“I am young and you are old,
so I held back from telling you what I think.
I thought, ‘Those who are older should speak,
for wisdom comes with age.’
But there is a spirit within people,
the breath of the Almighty within them,
that makes them intelligent.”
That is the source.
Wisdom does not only come from age. I write from inspiration, once inspired, the words simply flow and all I have to do is type them out.
Time spent analyzing and looking for where the contents of #TMP comes from is better spent uploading the contents into the mind.
