comment How to write a “strong” passage?
Thanks for the quick response; I'll reopen. Any further clarification of "strong" that you can add will help the question; maybe you could provide an example of something you consider to be strong, that evokes the kind of feeling you're going after? Thanks.

comment What are some best practices/dos and don'ts of managing an online editorial calendar?
Welcome to Writers. Could you add some information about your typical publication cycle (answers might be different for daily news, monthly magazines, and annual journals), how many writers and editors are involved, and how numerous and big the tasks are? (Your last bullet point hints at an answer to my last question here; is that just an example or is that the situation you're asking about? More specific is generally better.) Thanks!

The link was just an ad for the book (no actual information about the content of the question); replaced with a title/author. Please be careful about promotion; answers need to contain answers.

comment Is there a format I can save my poems in that will make the publisher unable to copy and paste?
How does Excel help? What options are you thinking of? We're looking for answers that explain their reasoning; this sounds pretty speculative and it's not very detailed. Can you edit to expand it?

comment How to indicate the topic has been changed without using words?
Hi. Please don't use posts to carry on conversations; feel free to edit your question to add information or provide clarifications, but it's best if the post reads as an integrated whole, instead of "X... response to A... edited to add B..." etc. The questions work best if the question is clear (and the answers work best as answers); for discussion, please feel free to use Writers Chat.

comment Any advice on how to learn DITA for technical writing?
@NeilFein DITA is an information architecture/organizational scheme; while it's definitely on the geeky side and was presumably influenced by software principles, it's a tech-writing thing and IMO on-topic.
