comment Problem: Scenes that are unavoidable, but boring
Yes, this. You can see some good examples of this toward the end of 1634 (one of the books in the "ring of fire" fantasy series), where we get the sense of what the characters are doing but not all the boring details. We see the prime minister's mind wandering during negotiations, meaning we get snippets of conversation mixed with his thoughts. His thoughts are more interesting than the negotiations, so the author went with that. :-)

Or use a word processor in which you can turn off the distracting grammar-checking and then turn it back on when you're ready to review.

comment Where to check the income of the most famous US fiction writers?
I'm not convinced this is on-topic. Questions that affect you as a writer, like how much you might someday expect to earn, are fine, but this feels like a question about specific writers, not writing. Thoughts?
