comment How to overcome the fact that I can't write long stories?
@Akash Ha no sure why so many people are answering this question these days. Anyway, I overcame this problem and finished my novel Animal Suicide. Thanks Writers SE for the help.

comment Past perfect in past tense narrative: When to use and when not to?
Thanks a lot! I never thought of that. (Good thing I asked. I thought I was the only writer in the world who had this problem.)

comment How to make a list enjoyable to read?
@Dean Corso I'm sure other people agree with you. But there's a reason why he's listed as one of the greatest comedians ever: google.com.tw/… And yes, he's was all what you mentioned. And he turned it into comedy. Which is genius, in my opinion.

comment Should I use “could be” or “could have been” in past-tense narration?
Thanks. So "could X be ..." is a question that can be made in both present and past tense narration? (To express possibility.)

You guys are right. How about the new title?

comment What are the drawbacks of writing too much in the active voice?
Oh, sorry. I think I mistakenly asked this question on English SE. Maybe my mobile's screen is too small. This is clearly a Writers SE question?

@Tayrma_T Are you talking about the blurb or prologue?

comment Writers block: Lost momentum, can't write even a sentence
@Mac Cooper Yeah, then you'll get drunk and write some amazing stuff and forget how you did it in the morning.

comment Is it OK to add description just because a chapter has none?
@what Oh, I see. Yes, the question still represents my intentions. I'll try to write questions like that in the future (sometimes the line between what's allowed and what not in this site gets confusing). Thanks.

comment Is it OK to add description just because a chapter has none?
@what I can't see the difference, though, between my question and this one: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/8332/… (both ask for a specific question while referencing personal material.)

@what Oh, sorry, I didn't notice. What can I do? Maybe just remove my example?

@Dan Bron Thanks for the reply. I'm curious. Why aren't you fan of either?

You can do it like David Mitchell and write a novel that consist on many interconnected novellas/novelettes.

comment Main noun: How do you decide where to place it?
Mmm, I'm confused. I read somewhere that the last part of sentence was the most important one.

comment Ways to remove “filtering” in narration?
Interesting. I didn't think of that. I wonder, though, why filtering makes the narrator sound less confident?

comment Is it strange to describe the narrator's facial expressions in a first-person narrative?
So you wouldn't consider the second examples as "telling not showing"? But something that comes natural to first-person narration?

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
When the mother asks "are you all right?" she's referring to her health (the cold that the daughter previously mentions). Hence, not getting what she wants to say: that there's something else aside from health. I think this is my fault, though. I didn't post the whole thing. I wanted to keep the question brief.

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
Actually in the end I listened to your advice, ha (and what's). I changed it into this: "Like she'd focus on my individual words instead of what they said as a whole." What do you think of that one? (What happens is that the mother is listening to her daughter, but not understanding what she wants to say.)
