Due to the planned Black Out for the protest against the SOPA and PIPA bills, my weekly WIP update will be postponed until tomorrow.
I will be honest: I don't follow the news a whole ton. And I rarely know what is going on in politics. Yes, I am one of those Americans. *shrug*
But what I have read, heard and learned about SOPA has me worried. I won't get into a huge rant about it here. My blog is a not a place for political uproars, it is a place for writing. But I will say that the possibility that images like the one above might appear on my hard-worked-upon (yes, I have made that a phrase) blog... That something worse than that image could happen... That more and more freedoms and rights might be taken from people... does have me worried.
I do see where this act is coming from. I would hate to find that my book, which I literally slaved over, has been pirated. I would be more than upset. Regardless, seeing the potential of what these bills could result in is much more frustrating and scary than the thought that someone stole a free copy of my book. (It's not expensive... don't steal it...)
Wikipedia, Wordpress, and Minecraft to name just a few) are blacking out. They are showing us a tiny glimpse of a large possibility.
I swear... there has to be at least ten books out there about this...
We all love dystopians. Just imagine.
