So, I'm Being Sued! Here's How You Can Avoid Being Sued, Too

Hi all. As you may know, last year I wrote 100 short stories, and posted them to my blog. Each one had a photo attached, specifically the picture or illustration that inspired the story in the first place.

And now a photographer is suing me for unfair use. This is one of those times where "It's the internet, everybody does it" isn't gonna cut it. I feel like a horse's ass.

Meanwhile, I'm deleting photos from any and all articles. I have no desire to leave myself open to this kind of attention in the future. Apologies.
