comment Coping with writer's block
Hi hyp3r and welcome to Writers. As Lauren noted, this question has been asked so I've marked it as a duplicate. I hope the answers to the other question help you. If you have followup questions (or ones on other writing topics) please feel free to ask them. Thanks, and good luck with your course!

comment Published on blog but taken down: Still remains previously-published?
I think you would have to ask in that case. And on the Internet, never say never. You don't know who saved a copy or where it might have gone. If not Google, the Wayback Machine. If not the Wayback Machine, something you don't yet know about. Back in the 80s people posted on Usenet thinking it was ephemeral; imagine the collective surprise when archives showed up on Google 10-15 years later. If it never had wide circulation and it's gone now there's a chance that the publisher doesn't care, but only the publisher can answer that. Good luck!

comment What is the purpose of version control?
@JohnSmithers thanks for the information, particularly about binary diff. Do any tools also support merge with binary files (like Word docs)?

@JohnSmithers good point. I've added a note about that (which is something I've commented on here in the past, but had forgotten to include here).

comment Bullets vs. Numbering: which to use when?
I agree with this answer. Specifically, when order matters, such as the sequence of steps in a procedure (do this, then do that, etc), always use numbering unless you have a style guide that tells you otherwise (and if you do, I'm curious whose it is as that would be unusual).
