Ugh.

I always found it hard to 'rewrite in my own words" information I'd read elsewhere, because dammit, someone else had already said it so well, but it also wouldn't work if my papers were absolutely nothing but a string of cited quotes with none of my own words anywhere. So I struggled, and was sad at how awkward my own words sounded, and frustrated with how long it could take me to come up with those words.

Which is to say, I never plagiarized, because I was super-conscientious about it and worked hard not to, but I really do understand it can accidentally happen when trying to paraphrase and not quite succeeding.

I have enough faith in you, PV, to believe that's more what happened to you and I send virtual hugs your way.

(If you actually did the evil cut and paste or retyped word for word deliberately, then no comfort for you!! Take a stern and disappointed look instead.)

Plagiarize Shia Labeouf's apology letter that he plagiarized when he went to court for plagiarism.
