comment Is there a good textbook for understanding literary techniques?
Interesting question, look forward to suggestions from others because the only books I know of are glossaries/dictionaries e.g. The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms.

comment What sites can I use to crowdsource my writing project?
If you carry on reading the Wikipedia article, it goes on to note: "The use of the term has spread to include models where discrete work is distributed to individuals within the crowd. Companies such as CloudCrowd and CrowdFlower do not use classic crowdSourcing because the crowd does not all participate together, or collectively sort through solutions."

comment What sites can I use to crowdsource my writing project?
He's perfectly correct in his usage of the term. Crowd-sourcing does not always imply collaborative work between multiple sources. It can also mean an individual is sourcing solutions from a crowd of individuals: an individual proposes a project; X number of people submit their work to meet the requirements of the project to earn the prize. The individual then chooses the one they prefer. (CrowdSpring does this.) Absolutely no problem with his usage. The only question really is whether or not it has anything to do with writing.

That better? BTW, I also thought it would be on topic, since there have been previous questions about contracts, fees etc., and also some about translation.

+1 for that Female Character Flowchart alone. Genius.

Not an answer, but it made me laugh. Great film, that. Excellent script.
