    Great Info. Thank you for sharing. Can you offer any advice on how to protect an “original concept?” I mentioned tibits to a couple of friends and now they want to help me write and pitch the series. While I believe that they are both honest, I need to protect myself, my concept and future.

      You don’t want to get into sticky territory with friends! I’d be inclined to “develop” the idea in private and if it comes up with friends, just say that you’d love their input at some point but you want to get your own thoughts together first. Of course that means you can’t really talk to them about the idea, but trust me, you’ll need fresh eyes when you do have a draft. Then it’s a clearer relationship where they’re giving you notes on something you made, not helping you come up with the ideas to begin with. Input during the writing process should be restricted, if possible, to other writers (who you trust) or professionals who are working for you.
