On another site their is this beta exchange. It is were you hook up with another writer and exchanges stories, first of all to have someone read your whole manuscript chapter by chapter and revise it along the way per the suggestions and edits that you want to be put in your novel idea. I swapped stories with someone recently. Her giving me her first chapter and me giving her mine. My worry is her stealing my story. Her suggestions and edits were pretty much rewriting my first chapter for me. Right away, I was worried. REG FLAG. She mentioned she was a copyeditor. Now she is really nice, don't get me wrong. But I certainly did NOT want someone to write my own story better. It's like I didn't even write it at all. I don't want to continue with this. I am afraid she is going to snatch my idea for her own in her own rewrites of my work. My question is, should I be afraid? Or am I overreacting? Are there really people out there that steal other peoples work on the internet? Like I said, luckily it was only my first chap. I am certainly not going to send more. Any thoughts on this anyone? Has anyone gone through this before?
