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?

comment Narrating something that happened between chapters as a flashback in a present-tense novel
How are you planning to communicate the passage of time? For example, does the second chapter start with something like "As I sat in a coffee shop a week and a half later, I found myself reflecting on the previous weekend, when I..."?

comment Questions about book
Hi Jessica and welcome to Writers. We're a little different from other sites; we're not a discussion forum but a Q&A site. We can help you with questions about writing technique, publishing, plot structure, and stuff like that, but we can't help with "what to write". Please take a look at our short tour. Can you edit this question to be about the genre or about introducing conflict, rather than just asking what you should write? Thanks.

comment How Does the Publishing Process Work?
Good overview. Is it worth adding something about when, after handing the manuscript over to the agent, the author interacts with it again? For example, do any of the subsequent edits come back to the author for review/approval? Is it an interactive process?

comment I have three dead-end chapters. Should I keep them or remove them?
Oh, sorry -- from the way I read your question it sounded more focused.

comment Should you publish or share poetry that was written simply in an angry or sad rant?
@what, thanks for the edit. I've reopened. Jenny, if you could edit in some information about where you're considering publishing such work, that would make your question stronger. How you approach a literary journal versus your blog might be different.

comment Should you publish or share poetry that was written simply in an angry or sad rant?
Welcome to Writers. It's not clear what the question here is; if it's "should one do this", that's pretty hard to answer objectively. (We're not a discussion forum.) If you're asking for a critique of your work, unfortunately critiques aren't on-topic. Please check out our short tour for more about how the site works, and we welcome questions that fit better with the scope outlined there. Thanks for understanding.

comment Is it permissible to write a short story with little or no dialogue?
Could you identify some of the stories you've read with no dialogue? Thanks.
