comment Are collection of short stories more likely to sell than single short stories?
so I should post both the collection and single stories to my Facebook fanbase? I'm afraid that would be a little too overwhelming for them.

That editing was a pretty good. Thanks a lot.

comment Am I adding too many unnecessary “actions/descriptions”?
Thanks. I'll rephrase that sentence. Well, the main conflict of the main character is that she is afraid of change or losing her solid ground. The earthquake is a kind of metaphor (as well as the fact that she didn't feel it). So I guess change and time, for instance, are just little branching themes.

comment Am I adding too many unnecessary “actions/descriptions”?
Thanks a lot! I like the phrase action without import. I'll consider the points you made. Well, the story is about a girl who fails to feel an earthquake, so there are many themes: change, time, etc. (by the way, you meant there are grammar mistakes and oddly phrased sentences in the passage? I'm not an native English speaker so I may have missed something.)

comment How to format news, poems, text messages, and other kinds of written text?
@Pravesh Parekh My paragraphs are formatted as 0.25 inches. That means I have to leave the poem as 1.25?
