comment Is sending your characters back to a different century a good way to disguise them?
Tom, I've linked to the question in the comments, so the questions will show as related. I phrased this specifically towards your question here, and I think I'd rather leave it as-is. :) Glad you liked the answer, though. I think the answers to your previous question are great too, but I'll think whether I have anything worth adding there as well.

Hi Anvita! Welcome to Writers.SE, and best of luck with your writing! Part of how this site works is, we try to merge between different people asking the same thing - that means we don't answer the same questions over and over, and you've got a page all ready with responses. I'm going to mark this one as a duplicate; I hope the existing answers help!

comment Page turnings clarification
NotesArt, you might find ell.stackexchange.com useful - it's better geared for questions like "is this ok" and basic English phrasing/grammar . :)

@what I checked, and it's not on topic at EL&U without a specific question or a problem with what's wrong.

comment Plot idea to make the murderer (involuntarily) reveal himself
@LaurenIpsum: Mulling this over. I'm not seeing how this doesn't fall under "Please give me ideas," or alternatively "Please point me to sources with ideas" - but if you do, I'd love to hear more. Are you saying that in your opinion, asking for ideas is OK if it's for a situation broad enough to be helpful to others? I'm not sure that's our current OT definition, though we could certainly open this up to Meta.

I assure you, your effort in writing a clear, comprehensive question are evident and appreciated :) I'd be happy to discuss this further in chat. Also, community members with opinions are very welcome to weigh in, as always :)

comment Plot idea to make the murderer (involuntarily) reveal himself
So, IMHO, the way to turn this into a workable question is to explain what precisely your problem is. You know what you're looking for. So, what's holding you back from coming up with something appropriate and running with that? If it's "I don't have any good ideas," then this remains off-topic - Q&A doesn't work for brainstorming story ideas. But if you do have ideas, but all of them are giving you trouble - then that's a problem we might be able to help with.

comment Plot idea to make the murderer (involuntarily) reveal himself
I think this falls afoul of our "asking what to write" rule. There might be a good question here, but I think this needs a bit of reworking for this to be on-topic. I'm closing for the moment, for discussion and editing. If we can improve, I'd love to reopen.
