comment Do writing goals really work--what are the pros and cons?
@justkt - If you have any suggestions on what might make it a better question, I'd love to hear them. I'm trying to stir up some activity on this site, and I think it would be a LOT more beneficial to provide examples for everyone to see than just criticize and close. At least you offered me a chance to change this before closing, unlike the answer to another question which you closed without discussion. How are site visitors supposed to learn if moderators use their authority to just close objects without explaining why?

comment Author's notes: yay or nay?
Wow, it's a really tough crowd today! I'm trying to get some questions started that will spark some discussion and/or involvement with the site in general. While I will concede that this question may not be up to a certain standard of excellence, I do feel it is relevant for the site. The idea was to ask a question that many writers do not generally think about when they have finished or are close to finishing their book.

comment How much leeway can be expected from an editor regarding my preference for nonstandard punctuation?
I like to think that an editor is looking at your work from the perspective of potential readers, so this is reassuring. If an editor suggests changes because he doesn't feel that your target audience is going to tolerate or appreciate your "uniqueness", then you need to be willing to make some adjustments!

Are you asking about software to use for making a magazine? Sorry, but your question isn't worded very well.

comment First publication rights still available on this?
Actually, the printer has nothing to do with it. The printer is merely providing a service and is not the publisher. In fact, he had it specifically stated inside the books that his company was the publisher. Since he owns the company, he has essentially self-published the book.
