Hello, I want to know how I can register a copyright to my novel. I understand that the work must be fixed for fixation and original. I talked to a publisher about publishing my novel (I really don’t want it published, I just want it copyrighted) because I thought that they are the ones who copyright peoples’ stories. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? By the way, I don’t care to have my book published; I just like writing them for the fun of it. When I show my work to other people, I don’t want them to copy it and claiming ownership of my work.
