comment Submitting work to agents who request exclusive submissions
If both got published, would anybody involved think you'd double-submitted? Or are they unrelated (other than being in the same setting/series)?

comment How do you write a good product description?
What kind of product description? An attention-grabbing web page? A brochure to be sent out to qualified leads? A detailed specification for a complex piece of equipment? A social-media pitch?

revised How should I have my male character express strong feelings?
The original title made this sound like an opinion poll, which is not what this site is for. Trying to focus this more on the *writing* problem.

revised How linear should I be in writing my story?
Edited to make it less of an opinion poll, which isn't on-topic here. Asking for *advice* is fine; asking "what does everybody do" isn't a good fit for Stack Exchange.

comment Using filler words like 'So', 'Anyway'
The question didn't ask "should I do this?" (and even if it did, you should support your opinion rather than just stating it). The question asks if this style, in a particular type of writing, is effective. Please edit to address the question. Thanks.

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.
