comment Software recommendations for magazine layout?
Of course I can. But I won't be able to provide the full details as I am still learning. So, goto their website or youtube 'how to use corel'. You'll get the idea.

@Mussri, when it comes to casual talking in english, grammar is the last thing you want to emphasize on.

comment Is it appropriate to credit someone with a quote if I am not absolutely sure they are the source?
I believe the complete dialogue is this: "We believe that the universe itself is conscious in a way we can never truly understand. It is engaged in a search for meaning. So it breaks itself apart, investing its own consciousness in every form of life. We are the universe trying to understand itself." It is said by a character called Delenn from the 1995 series "Babylon 5: Passing Through Gethsemane" Season 3 ep 4. But I am not sure about Carl Sagan.

comment Pitfalls of writing a main character of different gender to the author, specifically first-person perspective?
"because I can't relate to the nuances of the female mind." Hahahha

comment Should cliffhangers be used in every chapter?
well that's tricky.. I think they are sort of a feeling of surprise + oh-shit situation.

comment Should cliffhangers be used in every chapter?
My story is in first person.. So It doesn't include intertwined stories.. It is linear and I have only one POVC.

comment How do you build good per-book *and* global indexes?
Yes, I get the idea. I was Googling DTD's when I stumbled upon docbook. And to my bad luck, I could not find any thing on adding words to only global indexes. But I hope you get the solution on SO. :)

comment How do you build good per-book *and* global indexes?
Well, I really think that this question can belong to our site. Because essentially, from what I know about coding, Cellio is probably using a 'software' to write. And the 'writing' she is referring to is a technical documentation. And I mean a Huge documentation. So basically, she has posted the question in the right forum. But as Fein said, we do need writers here who are technically sound.

comment My first act is lengthy. And I cannot shorten it. Any Suggestions?
Well, John, Its a light read that I am writing. Because the majority of the youth in my country read lightly cooked up stories. And most of them are campus love stories which has a stereotypical protagonist falling in love with a stereotypical girl and having a stereotypical physical relationship which ends up in a stereotypical happy ending. But my genre is thriller. So I thought of writing a thriller in a light-read fashion which can land me well into the masses. But i do get your point. And I want you to know that it will help me. Thanks! :)

comment My first act is lengthy. And I cannot shorten it. Any Suggestions?
@Lauren, But that's the problem with me. I just cannot move on to the next chapter until I personally feel that I have written good. And I do regret this bend of my mind. And plus, in light-reads of my country, the wordlimit for a debut author is 50K. So now you can well imagine what kind of a problem this is.

Haha I see what you are trying to say but this is my first work. And the publishers are kind of strict when it comes to the word-limit.
