comment no matter whether = whether?
Also, English Language Learners is not the same thing as English Language and Usage. I believe that would require some revision to demonstrate research effort as well.

This should not go to English Language and Usage without much improvement.

Ending it the first time, or ending it in revision?

I think you are giving helpful advice for some other question. I edited this one to try to make it clearer what I'm asking.

comment Getting short fiction published
I'm not clear on your answer. Are you saying you think that it is a waste of time to submit to publications without having written many stories on my own first? Otherwise, this is a lot of advice that I already mentioned that I am doing. I have no intention of submitting anything less than a finished product.

comment Getting short fiction published
I was thinking of looking into literary magazines, to see if I could find some that I like that would also have work similar to what I imagine my own style to be. And rejected work, yes, I'm talking about my own, assuming that I don't have a chance of success until I have experience.

comment Referring to sign language in conversations
In Clan of the Cave Bear, it is addressed at the beginning that the Clan uses sign language and grunts to communicate. After that, when Ayla learns to understand their language, the author only sporadically refers to the communication method (usually when it is pertinent).

comment Do the following scenes feel like flashbacks?
It's not clear to me that the scenes are flashbacks either. Can you add a little more description about where the scenes occur in time and why they happen in that order instead of being temporally connected? I'm having trouble understanding without that context.
