I want to write a novel. And I will one day. I have a premise; I'd tell you about it, go into detail about concepts, but how do I know you wouldn't pinch them? Huh? I don't! You could be one of those plagiarists I've heard tell about. You might take my idea and run with it. I could still be sitting here in two years, procrastinating (very possible) and suddenly I read in a review of best-sellers a synopsis that closely resembles mine. What then? I'd be one of those sad individuals saying "that was my idea". Oh dear.
