Chuck Sambuchino advises against posting any part of your fiction WIP in the April 25 edition of Guide to Literary Agents blog. Guide to Literary Agents - Be (Slightly) Afraid of Posting Your Work Online
I've had two versions of the synopsis of my WIP posted for a few weeks. As soon as one of my critique partners shared this link with me, I immediately took them down. I had never considered the possibility of theft. The article scared me.
I'm curious now. How many of you post excerpts of your work? Have you considered the possibility that someone might pilfer your work? Or is it all worry about nothing?
