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! :)

@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.

comment Does this beginning hook the reader?
I'm giving out my thoughts just as a reader and not as a critic; there's a difference. I would definitely read it!

comment I cannot determine my Protagonist's work-life. Any help?
@Justkt, I understand that and that is the reason i never asked to give me the elaborated view. I asked " guide me as to where can I get an elaborated view". Meaning that i'll find out. Just show me the right way to go which i believe you all always do. Thanks a ton!

comment I cannot determine my Protagonist's work-life. Any help?
Well, i would love to ask someone directly. But i thought maybe they are too busy and why will someone share their experience with me for my so-called-novel! I even tried to search for a pharma official but then i couldn't find the (if you may call it:)courage to actually go up there and knock the door. But as you guys said, I guess i was thinking the wrong way!
