comment Do these starting paragraphs make you want to keep reading?
@M.Na'el - these are the guidelines. Right now this question is lacking just that - a focused, specific question. We are not a critique circle, but rather a Q&A site. We like answering questions. For places to get generic critiques see this question, this question, etc.

@MNa'el - edit this to follow the critique guidelines, @ reply to me, and it can be re-opened.

comment Write about academic plans
I have opened a meta question about this question and whether or not questions like it should be on-topic.

comment Write about why XX is an intellectual fit for you
This is far too localized. A better question would be to ask about how to write an essay (or short answer) for a graduate school in general.

comment How do I keep up with current written English language?
@Joshin - I agree with Rene. You make a very definitive statement without any support. The answer would be improved with support. Also, there are single places to find answers on the official version of some languages (France has such an organization, for example) and those languages are most certainly alive.

This covers American English, your periodicals may vary for other dialects.

comment Legality of Academic Ghostwriting
I can see how this question would be of deep ethical interest to many writers.

comment Does this beginning hook the reader?
@M.Na'el - editing does bump up the body. More importantly, editing makes the older answers pretty obsolete. In the future I'd recommend opening a new question that references the old question with clarifications on what you incorporated.

comment Ideal blog post size and frequency
This is an extremely broad question. Can you narrow it down with at least a genre? There's going to be a difference depending on your aims, target audience, etc. Asking for an ideal blog post size and frequency is like asking for the ideal word count for a novel, any novel.

comment Does this essay demonstrate flow, clarity, and passion?
I've edited this question to better align with our critique guidelines.

comment Article submission websites
While this is likely on-topic here, Programmers may be a better place for the subject-matter expertise of what places accept technical articles and will plug your book in return. The answers you are likely to get here are more generalized, since our expertise is writing not programming.

comment Dedicated micro website
Is this question "Should I set up a website for my book?" or "How do I set up a website for my book?" If it's the latter, there is a better StackExchange site for that question and it would be off-topic here. Please clarify. Thanks!

comment What is a basic structure for writing an essay on the SAT or for an AP exam?
@wizlog - based on this comment I edited the question to be more broadly applicable to other students.

comment What is a basic structure for writing an essay on the SAT or for an AP exam?
Can you clarify this into a question? "Does this work" is rather vague. Does it serve what purpose? What kind of an essay are you talking about? Academic? Journalistic? Creative?

comment How can I effectively invent a language?
This is on-topic here because it is about writing (I think), but you will get the real experts on the linguistics part at Linguistics.SE, although their FAQ does not contain an on- or off-topic list yet, so I'm not sure at what level of expertise they require their questions.

comment What are the challenges of converting blog content to a publishable work?
This is fairly broad. Could you tighten it up? Perhaps give us more information on your rants and specialty - genre matters. Also what part of the process are you looking for information on? Finding an agent/editor? Getting a book deal? Organizing everything for publication?

This is excellent.

comment Resume Preamble: Sounds wrong
@KorvinSzanto - welcome. Critique questions on this site must meet our very specific guidelines, including having a set of criteria by which to critique the work. The closest thing to a specific criteria which you have provided is grammar-related, which is not on-topic for critiques. Please edit this question or it will be closed.

comment Is this excerpt's style too matter-of-fact?
Great critique question. Can you edit the tags to add the genre or something else descriptive?

comment Is this a sound outline for an essay on “Comparing a Song's Lyrics to Society”?
it should be left open. Questions should only be closed if they meet one of our closing criteria, which this does not.
