I'm an elected moderator on Mi Yodeya and The Workplace, and a pro-tempore mod here on Writers and on WorldBuilding. I'm pretty active on the SE network.

Professionally, I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I've written programming guides, tutorials, reference applications (runnable examples), reference documentation (for Java, C++, C, SOAP, and REST APIs), and even a little user documentation. I'd love to see more technical-writing questions here on Writers!

A word of warning: if you are interested in the Biblical Hermeneutics site, I urge you to consider these words from a non-Christian who went down that path. They want people to help build their site (which they say is non-religious), but they allow Christian evangelism and presumption, quite a bit of it. Learn from another's mistake. See also: Working with idolaters, infidels, and the impious: can interfaith discourse work?

comment What is the correct casing for a character's title?
Agreed. Liath, you may be struggling because calling people "lord" is uncommon today, but think about how you use "sir" and I think you'll naturally do the right thing.

comment How can I make it more erotic?
If an open question has answers, do not change the question in a way that invalidates those answers. Further, as another comment notes, the new form is off-topic. I've rolled this back to the previous version (and put your explicit passage behind a spoiler block so people who don't want to read it don't have to). While this version would probably be on-topic (or at least wasn't closed before), I'm putting this on hold while you sort out what you want to ask.

comment Capitalizing “The” in Title Case - Increases Engagement?
Welcome to Writers. You asked about "The", but the same question would apply to some other words in your examples ("A" and "Of"). Are you asking specifically about "The" or about all words like that (that would normally not be capitalized)?

comment How can I better promote my film review blog?
FWIW, if publishing is on-topic (it is) and blogs are on-topic (they are), then I think promoting blogs (promotion is part of conventional publishing) is also on-topic.
