comment best licensing option for freest possible sharing of lyrics while retaining the right to get paid if someone else makes money from them
You can dual-license. For example, use CC-BY-NC for non-commercial use, and some other license for commercial use. The choice of which license(s) to offer is up to you as the copyright holder. Just be careful about derived works, as those would presumably be under the CC-BY-NC license offer from you, which can open a can of worms.

comment What is considered an acceptable length for a technical document?
You may want to compare the documentation for Apollo spacecraft. Sure, that's a complex system with many interconnected pieces, but it sounds like the system you are working on is also complex.

comment Anyone has any super intense software for plot outlining?
Showing up with 1 rep and repeatedly posting about a tool you are making (selling? intending to sell?) yourself feels a lot like spam, even if that is perhaps not your intention. Like @Standback mentioned above, you should at the very least take some time to explain how exactly this tool is a good fit for the needs of the particular OP. I recommend reviewing How to not be a spammer in our site's help center.

comment How many errors per page volume is typically “okay” in a book?
Three or four errors per page acceptable? (For the OP's 300 pages, that's a thousand errors.) That's a lot in my mind.

comment Writing from a hive mind POV
Like Lauren Ipsum suggested, this might be good to ask about on Worldbuilding SE too. On Worldbuilding you could explore various aspects of the world you are creating; here on Writers, you can hash out how to present it all to your readers and to your publisher.

comment Should I create my own ConLang for my story?
@LaurenIpsum Questions relating to constructed languages are on topic on Worldbuilding, provided that they otherwise fall within the site's scope (for example we don't accept character-building questions) and aren't excessively broad or open-ended.

comment Can I use general short stories to publish on my site, blog, etc.?
"You cannot post any material for which you do not have copyright." Sorry, but while the gist holds, stated that way this is wrong. You cannot publish material for which you do not have permission that is under copyright. There is plenty of material that is out of copyright. Note that a rework of an old classic may be under copyright even though the original is not.

comment tinyURL seen as risky by readers?
Also, the odds of the long URL being stored in something like The Internet Archive is much better than the shortened URL being available along with its target location.

comment Using emails in an autobiography
@TRiG I'm pretty sure the OP is asking about whether it is acceptable to use existing emails within a larger work, rather than asking about telling one's life's story through made-up emails.
