G.E.T.S Good Enough To Steal
I've read your other two threads dealing in part with the problems you have with members of your family.
Dealing with depression and anxiety
Forums / Relationship and family issues / Dealing with convert narcissists
Perhaps I misunderstand but under those circumstances why share intimate portions of your psyche to them? I agree it is thoughtless and rude to pass on your works, and to do so unacknowledged. Perhaps you need to emphasize the privacy issues, even a copyright notice -or is that overkill?
My own belief is that people make works of art for basically a couple of reasons, to please themselves, and/or to communicate with a person or group in a way that is more effective than the norm.
Would you agree and which do you feel motivates you?
As an aside I'd think it always unlikely if you offer a work you will get one back in kind, a great many people are not artistic in that way and also it may simply never occur to them.
Perhaps you have the wrong audience. A blog, such as on Wordsmith, is a good way to communicate, and allows you to include images too. There are techniques for popularizing your blog so it reaches an audience greater than one, the same applies to YouTube for videos.

Obviously you will not receive accreditation other than as Clownartist and would not be able to publish them in your own name elsewhere for anonymity reasons, however you might find it helpful, both for yourself and others who may read them when feeling less than good.
If you do I promise to acknowledged them:)
Hi Clown Artist,
Im a designer by trade, and I look to “reference” material from others for my projects. Stuff in magazines, contemporary trends etc.. Most of the time not seeking to re-invent the wheel but Picking up on new bits that can add to my projects wholistically.
i also heard the other day that the Rolling Stones released bitter sweet symphanies signature intro sound back “the verve”, look it up, it’s an intresting topic that relates to your thread.
I think they call it samplers? In the music industry, plenty of bands have used references from others to construct their songs.
But I also do like to re-invent the wheel on occasion.
It is amazing to see how the Rolling Stones said, it was never about the money, now we know it is about what we contribute to the world, collectively in a positive manner.
The other I can think of was Napster V Metallica.
it was the music industries version of the WIKI leaks saga..
If you want a chance to be like Tim Winton, Type in google “Tim Wintons agent” find her website and there’s a space where at times they allow you to submit your work for review. If you have a good story, then try it out, you never know...
