Zarquon's Singing Fish!

My parents live on the Isle of Wight. This information (and the other entries) are much more interesting than the stuff you generally get on the boat going over.

Have you thought of getting your stuff published - or maybe you already have.

Next time I'm going to see them, I'll have another look and use the info to inform my travelling around.

Glad you've enjoyed reading these!
It took a while to research the Anglo-Saxon articles - I had to start by reading through the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, Bede, and noting where the Isle of Wight was mentioned, as I don't know of anyone else who has fully covered it. It definately took a while, but it was fun.
I've no objection to getting anythying I write published, but I'm not sure if I'm ready yet. I don't know how to, either, to be honest. I've no idea about how to get what I've written copywrited, and I wouldn't know what to cover, what not to, or at least, I wouldn't at the moment. I just write as it is enjoyable, and I hope others enjoy reading what I write.
But the idea of my name in print is definately tempting.... smiley - winkeye

Thanks for stopping by to read.

Hello Bluebottle,
I come from Wroxall and until i saw it on your board i had never heard of "The legend of Wroxall", i am just compiling a virtual walk through Wroxall during my childhood 30-40 years ago which i am publishing on another site when it is complete and edited in approx 2 months time if not sooner.

If anybody on this site should show an interest then i am willing to publish it here too. I was wondering if i could possibly add your account of "The Legend Of Wroxall" as a fitting footnote to my article. It goes however without saying, that i would be very grateful
for your permission.

Thankyou vectis

Dear Mr Bluebottle,
Thankyou for your kind permission to use your piece, after it is only polite to ask as you had done the research.
At the moment, i am considering setting up a personal website to publish the piece i am working on, a piece i wrote in 1986 on the local railway in Wroxall and of course any future pieces i may write concerning Wroxall, or i might just stick to my original idea of just publishing my works on other peoples sites (with their permissions of course).
Regarding Copyright, I have been informed that there is no copyright on the internet as such only "courtesy". However in 1986 when i published my pamphlet on "The railway in Wroxall" i sent a copy on the day i printed it through the royal mail to my own address with a date stamp from the post office on the seal of the envelope , so that if any one else used it i could prove authorship and therefore copyright. Actually i did see a part of it reproduced in a magazine once verbatim, but with no acknowledgement and fired off a very nasty letter to the so called author of the piece,but discovered i couldnt afford to pursue it through legal channels. I am old fashioned enough to believe that if you borrow someone elses work as he did and i intend to then it is only right to acknowledge that fact, therefore i will put a note stating thanks to your good-self when and where i publish.
I thankyou for your kind answer sir, so you will see your name in print at least in that way.
yours sincerely
vectis
