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?

comment Where do you do your writing?
Hi Duncan and welcome to Writers. I've put your question on hold temporarily because right now it's more of an opinion survey or discussion topic than an objectively answerable question. Instead of asking where people here like to write, maybe you could ask a question about where writers tend to write, asking for aggregate information rather than individual anecdotes. That might be the sort of thing that writers' groups have done surveys on, for instance. Or there may be studies about environmental effects on productivity. If you edit the question it will be reviewed for reopening.

comment How should I write a height in feet and inches?
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. Thanks, and welcome to the site.

comment I have a race of winged characters in my story, but I'm struggling as to how and why?
Hi Gilbert and welcome to Writers. This question is off-topic here as it's more about plot/setting development than writing. You could ask this question on Worldbuilding, though, and probably get a lot of good input. Since you've already accepted an answer here I'm not migrating this, but feel free to ask a related question there too. (You'll want to ask your questions about how they grew wings and what the societal implications are separately, though.)

comment What are the differences between narrative and descriptive writing?
Can you edit to expand this? We're looking for longer answers that explain why and how, not just one-liners. Thanks.
