comment The most natural paragraph
I'm afraid rephrase requests are off-topic; see meta for more info.

comment Preventing the symbolic conflict of “Hunger Games” from overshadowing widespread social plight
I feel like I'm getting more "here's my take on the books" responses than answers to my question, which implies that my answer wasn't clear or pointed enough (and/or that posters disagree with my critique, which the question is founded upon). As such, I'm closing the question as nonconstructive.

comment Ways for main character to influence world following their death
@CoreXii: Oooooh. I love IF :D Have fun! Yes, adding that above would be helpful - it gives a much more concrete direction of what you're looking for (and blocks off certain answers, e.g. "The character leaves a will dictating what everybody else should do"). Also, gamedev.stackexchange.com might be helpful here - though I think this is on target here, too.

comment Ways for main character to influence world following their death
@NeilFein: Disagree; I think the question is fine as it stands. See meta.writers.stackexchange.com/questions/136/… - the consensus is that a broad request for tropes is better than a hyper-specific "what should I write next?" question.

comment Self publishing: Do I still need to follow the arbitrary word count limits?
@ShantnuTiwari: That's great! In that case, never do anything "just for the agents" unless absolutely necessary. If you don't see sense and benefit in it yourself, then even what might be valid guidelines won't be well-served by following them without seeing their point. Best of luck!

comment Self publishing: Do I still need to follow the arbitrary word count limits?
Important question - when you say "self-publishing", do you mean self-publishing an eBook? It's implied by your question (particularly distancing your case from "where books had to be printed"), but not stated explicitly. I'm editing on the assumption that that's your intention; please let us know if that's not the case.
