comment Describing protagonist's experience from using magic
I should point out that we try to avoid "what to write" questions here - they don't have any one answer, and they aren't helpful to others. So we're looking for something beyond "I need to write X; how should I do that" -- be specific, tell us why this specific thing is difficult for you.

comment Describing protagonist's experience from using magic
Hi Tanya! It's not entirely clear to me what it is you're having difficulty with here. You say you want to capture the sense of what the magic user goes through , great -- can you go ahead and, well, describe what he feels and what the experience is like for him? What is it that's giving you trouble here?

comment Using latin words in fantasy
This is a cool point. It's pretty familiar to English speakers that many words and phrases derive their meaning from an older language; Latin is recognizable enough to recreate the same effect in a fantasy world. Even if fantasy-world Latin doesn't literally sound like our Latin (or their Common like our English), you can imagine that our Latin is standing in for whatever their ancient defunct language is.

comment MLA: Avoiding Unintentional Plagiarism in Essay Writing
-1. Your example paragraph doesn't look like it's trying to demonstrate MLA style at all; it's demonstrating cohesion and paragraph structure (opening statement; advantages of Smith, each one with a clear "lead-in" statement in red, then supporting detail; finally a summary of the main claim). That invalidates pretty much all your assumptions regarding citations.

comment Writing and sharing Microfiction
Hi Maladictus! Welcome to Writers.SE! We're a Q&A site; feedback and sharing stories is beyond our scope here. Finding resources for a niche like microfiction or flash-fiction is on-topic, though; that's your primary question, so I've kept that (and removed the fiction piece). All the best!

As per @LaurenIpsum 's suggestion, Law.SE is probably a better place for this.
