comment Dybbuk by Gershon Winkler
Welcome to Writers Stack Exchange! This isn't really a question about writing or editing, so I'm putting it on hold. Please check out our short tour for more about how the site works.

comment Appropriate leading for blogs?
If this were a question about print typsetting I don't think we would close it as off-topic. Why is the web different?

comment Creating An Original World
As others said, this would be too broad on Worldbuilding. Worldbuilding can help with more specific aspects of your world (not so much specific characters; that's story, not world), but this would be closed there. Please do check out WB; you might find the worldbuilding-process tag helpful in particular.

comment Where are the six honest serving men?
I don't understand. Do you have a specific question, or are you looking for a discussion? Please clarify.

comment How to write a book in 2 weeks?
Hi. Can you edit to focus this more on technique and not on what to write? (What to write is off-topic and that's what you address in the first half of this answer.) Thanks.

comment How to write a book in 2 weeks?
Note that asking what to write is off-topic here; you'll need to focus on techniques, not cotent.

comment What's a good, wholesome, smut-free site where I can 'publish' my fiction writings for my friends to read?
Does it need to be a site that is already oriented around publishing fiction, or would publishing on a blog or journal site (where people subscribe to your content, independently of what else is hosted there) meet your need?

comment What do I put on my copyright page when self-publishing?
@DaleHartleyEmery thanks; I didn't know DBA was that accessible. I was considering deleting my answer in light of your far-superior one anyway, and now with this additional info it seems clear that mine misses the mark.

comment How much heed should we pay to writing advice
Note: this question does not ask "what do you do" (which we would close as primarily-opinion-based) but, rather, "how do you know/evaluate". Please focus answers on that.

comment If you could design writing software, what would be your top 5 required features?
Welcome to Writers. We've had this question before so I've closed it as a duplicate. The duplicate was closed because it was more of a discussion/opinion-poll question than one that can be answered objectively. You could edit this to address both those problems by focusing on the problem you are trying to solve. Are you trying to decide what writing software to buy? If so, please describe what you want to do with it (track lots of characters, manage a complex plot, whatever). Once we know what problem you're trying to solve, we'll be better able to help you. Thanks.

comment So, where do I begin?
You mention composition classes and genre, which suggests creative writing/fiction, and you also mention academic writing. And there are other types of writing. They have different paths and approaches. I think this is probably too broad as asked; can you edit to narrow it down? (You're allowed to ask more than one question. :-) )

comment My story passes in choppy blocks - how can I fix it?
You can generate a short link to any question or answer by clicking on "share" under a post and copying the URL it gives you.

comment Synonym for 'overly obvious'?
I don't understand what your question is. Do you want to reword that description somehow, or are you commenting on it and looking for a word to describe your reaction? What is "obvious" (overly or otherwise) about this?

comment Narrating something that happened between chapters as a flashback in a present-tense novel
How are you planning to communicate the passage of time? For example, does the second chapter start with something like "As I sat in a coffee shop a week and a half later, I found myself reflecting on the previous weekend, when I..."?

comment Questions about book
Hi Jessica and welcome to Writers. We're a little different from other sites; we're not a discussion forum but a Q&A site. We can help you with questions about writing technique, publishing, plot structure, and stuff like that, but we can't help with "what to write". Please take a look at our short tour. Can you edit this question to be about the genre or about introducing conflict, rather than just asking what you should write? Thanks.

comment How Does the Publishing Process Work?
Good overview. Is it worth adding something about when, after handing the manuscript over to the agent, the author interacts with it again? For example, do any of the subsequent edits come back to the author for review/approval? Is it an interactive process?

comment I have three dead-end chapters. Should I keep them or remove them?
Oh, sorry -- from the way I read your question it sounded more focused.

comment Should you publish or share poetry that was written simply in an angry or sad rant?
@what, thanks for the edit. I've reopened. Jenny, if you could edit in some information about where you're considering publishing such work, that would make your question stronger. How you approach a literary journal versus your blog might be different.
