I’ve opened the Writers’ Library on my website. Signing in with your ID and password is no longer required to access the contents of it.
The library consists of my articles, lecture notes, workshop and seminar notes as well as blog posts that have received significant reprint requests.
When I first started the library access was open. Then I caught a few unsavory types selling the articles that I do for free, which upset me immensely. So I started the sign in process, issuing IDs and requiring passwords. It wasn’t to know who was in the library. It was the only way I knew to keep those article-selling, copyright violating folks out.
Now it’s been a few years and the library has grown and the number of users has just stunned me. So to make it easier for users, I’m going to open the library up again (no more lost passwords) and see how it works out.
The articles are all copyrighted and I reserve that copyright. Reprint rules have changed and are disclosed on the main library page.
I hope they’re honored. If not, it’ll be back to passwords…
Oh, do check both sections (it got too big for one) for relevant articles. You know me and titles. 🙂
