I may have gotten a little carried away - mine is written & illustrated.  But the idea behind the story has been brewing since Christmas.  Can't wait until Monday so I can get back to my other projects which were neglected over the past few days.

How fun! I just emailed her an entry, because I'm going to be swamped next week and will probably forget. Thanks for the link. It ended up being poetry because it was so short!

 Just finished mine (it's not great) but...  what a challenging exercise in word count...I had some fun with it too!  PB writers should go for the challenge...really forces you to choose words that make that story move.   :jackolanturn:

My avatar is a crop of the full Christmas Card image, which I finished today.

I thought I'd share it on my blog:  http://brainrainblog.com/2014/10/25/christmas-card-is-finished/

I'd love to see everyone's.

Thanks Artemesia.
Yes, it's confusing. Some articles mentioned 60 years expiry for copywriting some 70. But you are right, better safe than sorry. Out goes the reference from my story for now :)

But I am keeping the headless horseman!! :)

Thanks again!

Also, I think you don't have your public domain figures exactly right. I think works published under copyright revert to public domain 70 years after the death of the author (not year of publication) or a certain number of years from publication if the work is not owned by an individual, but it all depends on how exactly the work was registered or copyrighted in the first place. It's really tricky. Sometimes copyrights can also be passed on to a family member or publisher (I think?), so it's best to research each work specifically as well, because there are often multiple factors.
