I don't understand. Do you have a specific question, or are you looking for a discussion? Please clarify.

comment How to write a book in 2 weeks?
Hi. Can you edit to focus this more on technique and not on what to write? (What to write is off-topic and that's what you address in the first half of this answer.) Thanks.

Note that asking what to write is off-topic here; you'll need to focus on techniques, not cotent.

comment What's a good, wholesome, smut-free site where I can 'publish' my fiction writings for my friends to read?
Does it need to be a site that is already oriented around publishing fiction, or would publishing on a blog or journal site (where people subscribe to your content, independently of what else is hosted there) meet your need?

comment What do I put on my copyright page when self-publishing?
@DaleHartleyEmery thanks; I didn't know DBA was that accessible. I was considering deleting my answer in light of your far-superior one anyway, and now with this additional info it seems clear that mine misses the mark.

comment How much heed should we pay to writing advice
Note: this question does not ask "what do you do" (which we would close as primarily-opinion-based) but, rather, "how do you know/evaluate". Please focus answers on that.

comment If you could design writing software, what would be your top 5 required features?
Welcome to Writers. We've had this question before so I've closed it as a duplicate. The duplicate was closed because it was more of a discussion/opinion-poll question than one that can be answered objectively. You could edit this to address both those problems by focusing on the problem you are trying to solve. Are you trying to decide what writing software to buy? If so, please describe what you want to do with it (track lots of characters, manage a complex plot, whatever). Once we know what problem you're trying to solve, we'll be better able to help you. Thanks.

comment So, where do I begin?
You mention composition classes and genre, which suggests creative writing/fiction, and you also mention academic writing. And there are other types of writing. They have different paths and approaches. I think this is probably too broad as asked; can you edit to narrow it down? (You're allowed to ask more than one question. :-) )

comment Synonym for 'overly obvious'?
I don't understand what your question is. Do you want to reword that description somehow, or are you commenting on it and looking for a word to describe your reaction? What is "obvious" (overly or otherwise) about this?
