I tend to scribble a lot

    Newer Older

    When I edit, I tend to scribble a lot, even when it's my own stuff (or the writing of people I really like). Last January, for example, I took a set of photos after scribbling all over a paper that Riccardo and I were working on for GECCO. This paper went on to win the Best Paper award in the genetic programming track at GECCO last month, so I'd like to think that all this editing had some value :-).

    I posted the full set over in my events account, and I plan on using some of them to show my students that I'm not just being mean to them -- I'm that mean to everyone!

    This showed up here now because a publisher contacted me about using this one in a college writing textbook. I figured I'd clean it up and post the full size version over here.

    Runaway Wind, zaskem, Haron_G, and 45 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Great shot. I would like to use the photo in a PPT (with credit, of course). Trying to tell a group not to over critique too many details at a particular stage. From what you put in your comments, seems like you have a similar approach. The comments on a creative product depend on the stage of work.

      This couldn't fit my new blog post more perfectly. I've credited you and linked the photo in the blog to this page. I also linked your credit to your profile. If you want to check it out, let me know and I'll provide the URL (Flickr doesn't want to include it here…). Now, may I humbly recommend rethinking your Flickr moniker? Many, many thanks!

      This photo is wonderful!
      I used it as the header image for the editing section of my portfolio site. You can see it here: catherinemccaffrey.weebly.com/editing.html
      I included attribution and links back to the photo and your profile.

      Great picture! I thought it was perfect for an article that I wrote about resumes. Of course, I gave you credit here.

      we're using it in a a course ppt. referenced your name, not sure how to link to license?

      Are you a student using it in a class? If so, it's probably covered by fair use and you don't really need to worry about it. If you're a faculty then it gets more complicated, but we can work it out.

      I like this pic a lot. Would it be alright if I used it in a post on my personal (non-commercial) blog? The post in question is about my editing process for a recent bit of creative writing I did.

    14. Unhindered by Talent 10 months ago | reply

      No problem, just make sure you provide attribution. Glad you like the photo!

      Thanks! I'm putting it up early next week (undiscoveredauthor.wordpress.com).

      I cannot for the life of me, find the other photo you took with this pen - which I am very grateful to you for taking and for listing it under a creative commons license. I have used it for my blog header and credited you in the first post. See it here: everythingonpaperisperfect.com

      Thank you.
