comment How could I share my lyrics?
+1 for Creative Commons; that's the first place I went reading this question! Note to the original poster: I bang the copyright-is-different-based-on-jurisdiction drum a lot, and CC licenses allow you to customize your license based on your country. Make sure to do that!

comment Translation as the starting point of a new work of fiction
Intellectual property laws vary from place to place! Copyright is not international. Just because you have copyrighted something in, for example, the United States doesn't effectively protect your work in other jurisdictions.

Copyright laws vary from place to place! What jurisdiction do you live in? Is what you are adapting covered by legislation in your jurisdiction or in another?

comment Should I start writing on paper first or start directly on the computer?
I tried iA Writer on my iPad and have never looked back. The advantages of being able to edit, copy, but mot importantly, to rearrange and to back up make paper nearly useless to me.
