Mood: Writing like mad!

Recycling for More Product

As far as I know, it is possible to plagiarize yourself. You can't release the same story as a new story. (And really, why would you want to?)

But a thought just popped into my mind...

What about different versions of things? Would it be possible to self-pub a novel, for example, and then release the same story, except told from a different point of view? Or in journal entries rather than omniscient prose? Or release it in sections?

Not that I have a novel I plan to do this with, I was just playing with the idea of creating more products to offer. Obviously many people do this when they make a 'box set' of an ebook series.

Mood: Wyatt, I am rolling.

Maybe, but I would think that to be a lot of time and effort spent on what is essentially the same bit. I like to wrap it up and move on.

I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.
