comment In present-tense narrative, does “I spend the NEXT few hours…” make sense?
"Should I instead use" -- is something missing there?

The OP mentions laptops and concerns about weight and support. Could you address those issues? You can edit your post to add more information. Thanks.

comment Format keyboard keys in documents
You make a good point about <kbd> --if the syntax you're using abstracts this away already, you'd follow that. I'll make a small edit to this.

Thanks for the comment. I've made a small edit to, I hope, clarify (at least for my own initial confusion). I hope we can find a tool for you!

comment How To Write An Unreliable Narrator?
Unreliable as a reporter of events, I assume you mean? So what he writes might not be what actually happened?

comment Authoring tool for interactive documentations
Could you elaborate on what you mean by interactive documentation, and what Flare doesn't provide that you need? Thanks. (I use Flare to produce HTML documentation with search and inline "pop-ups", but haven't done anything with embedded slideshows or videos.

comment What are some good writing analyzing software programs?
What kinds of analysis do you want tools to provide? Right now this question is both broad and more of an opinion survey, so I'm putting it on hold temporarily. If you edit your question to include some criteria (what problem are you trying to solve?), it'll be reviewed for possible reopening. Check out our short tour for more about what we're looking for. Thanks.

comment What's the best way to make a catchy slogan?
I'm going to make an edit to this question (to make it not a duplicate and more on-topic). Please let me know if I've captured your intent. That edit will put this into a review queue for reopening.

comment How to self-publish?
Are you asking about paper or electronic self-publising? What kind of readership are you trying to reach? What type of writing? (While the techniques are probably the same, some specifics about promotion will vary depending on whether you're writing technical books, romances, science fiction, biographies...)

comment How do I write in the language of a strict, serious character without using too much exposition?
Yes, you can still edit -- go for it. (Once it has answers, don't edit in a way that would invalidate those answers.)

@arayst glad to help! I've reopened it, and I trust our community will be able to offer some helpful answers. Thanks for working with us on getting this on track. (I'm going to clean up some of these comments now.)

comment Do fullscreen writing environments help for writing? Why?
Ok, it's been three years since Neil's comment so the question is even older and is still not a good fit for the SE format as written, so I'm closing it. Please feel free to ask a new question that is more objectively answerable. Thanks.

comment How do I write in the language of a strict, serious character without using too much exposition?
@arayst welcome to Writers. I think I see what you're trying to ask, and I've made a major edit to try to focus and clarify the question. Did I get it right? If so we can reopen this. If not, please edit further. If I got it totally wrong, you can roll back my edit by clicking on "edited by" above my name, finding your last version in the revision history, and clicking "rollback" there. Thanks for bringing your question here, and I hope I haven't done violence to it in trying to help you get an answer.

comment Where is a good place to post an 800 word essay on encouragement
Will you be bringing your own audience (so you need something more like hosting), or are you looking for a place with an audience (so you need something more like a community or publisher)?
