Some of you know that I have been working on some designs for a collaborative effort with a friend of mine, Gale Woolems. She is busy and we don’t get to meet often but have sometime set up for this Wednesday. I’m going to show her my designs that I’ve got ready and I hope it’s along the lines of what she was thinking. More so, I hope that it will be something that will be profitable for us both.
She writes poems and songs and stuff and I’m taking her words and designing them and making a montage around them or sometimes drawings and paintings. Our plan is to print them out, frame them up in some cases make greeting cards out of them and there is talk of maybe a small book. We have big ideas and no money. hah! We obviously have no business plan either.
I am leery to publish them to any sites yet for one: she hasn’t seen them and we will edit them together and two: I worry that people could very easily take her words and use them as they please. We all know how easy that is. I’m at quandary as to how to market them online without fear of them being snatched and sent in mass emails along with all the spam we all get. They are similar to emails that we get, you know like angel poems or friendship poems. Only these are her words, not something by some unknown author. But I guess those started out as someone’s words also. So you see what I mean. oy. what to do.
Does anyone have any advice about this sort of thing. We have no money to do any lawyer sessions.
