comment Do You Use Any Version Controlling Software/Methods As Writers?
I know this question is very popular, but it's a survey question, which isn't a good fit for the SE format. Asking what to consider in deciding to use version control, or what version-control system to use, for documentation would be fine, but with all the answers already here I don't see a clean way to make that edit. I suggest checking out linked questions and then asking a new question if there's something you still want to ask. Thanks.

comment Please critique my poem
Welcome to Writers Stack Exchange! Sorry, but critique questions are not on-topic here as they do not benefit anybody else. You are welcome to use your own writing as an example in the course of asking a question about writing itself, but we won't critique your work. I'm placing this on hold for now, but please feel free to edit this and we'll consider reopening.

comment DITA tag which contents are ignored or to contain non-DITA content
Questions about the DITA schema are on-topic. In this case the underlying issue is with XML, not specifically DITA, but the OP presumably didn't know that.

comment Is it okay to publish a book at a young age?
Welcome to Writers. We're looking for answers that explain their rationale, not just one-liners. Can you expand this, including addressing publishing? There might be reasons that a young author either can't publish (maybe legal stuff) or shouldn't (or shouldn't under a real name), and you haven't addressed publishing at all. You can edit your answer to add more details.

comment Submitting work to agents who request exclusive submissions
If both got published, would anybody involved think you'd double-submitted? Or are they unrelated (other than being in the same setting/series)?

comment How do you write a good product description?
What kind of product description? An attention-grabbing web page? A brochure to be sent out to qualified leads? A detailed specification for a complex piece of equipment? A social-media pitch?

comment which pronoun do I use here, “he” or “him”?
Hi trin and welcome to Writers. Please try to use meaningful titles for your questions -- don't use something like "editing question" but instead try to summarize your actual question. I've edited several of your titles; please take a look at those edits to see what I mean.

revised How should I have my male character express strong feelings?
The original title made this sound like an opinion poll, which is not what this site is for. Trying to focus this more on the *writing* problem.

revised How linear should I be in writing my story?
Edited to make it less of an opinion poll, which isn't on-topic here. Asking for *advice* is fine; asking "what does everybody do" isn't a good fit for Stack Exchange.

comment Using filler words like 'So', 'Anyway'
The question didn't ask "should I do this?" (and even if it did, you should support your opinion rather than just stating it). The question asks if this style, in a particular type of writing, is effective. Please edit to address the question. Thanks.

comment What to avoid when writing a villain?
This is pretty broad. Are you asking for villainous tropes to avoid, how to write his dialogue, how to reveal details of his past, something else?
