comment Is there any merit to the term “Mary Sue”?
This question is asking for opinions about a common term. While it might generate interesting discussion, it's not really a good fit for Q&A about Writers.

comment How to minimize language mistakes while writing
@LaurenIpsum - I agree that these two questions are very similar, but the answer to this question couldn't easily apply to the earlier question. I'd prefer to keep this one open unless the community decides to close it.

comment What's a good market for experimental novellas?
The question is still quite vague, I think.

comment What's a good market for experimental novellas?
The answers to this are going to be a bit vague, since we don't know all that much about the book other than its experimental nature. Maybe a better question would be to ask how to identify appropriate places to place the manuscript.

comment Books to improve writing skills
To the user who flagged this as non-constructive: This is an older question left open for historical reasons. Were it asked now, it would probably be closed.

comment How many pages would my manuscript be in paperback?
This doesn't answer the question.

comment Do I include the method of my research in the title?
I corrected some spelling and formatting in your question. In addition to Monica's concerns, does your university style guide for masters theses? This may be of help. I've even heard of individual departments having a style sheet.

Have attempted to come up with a title that better reflects the question. Have I succeeded?

comment Should I state my intentions/outline my structure at the beginning of an academic essay?
Welcome to Writers! More detail in this question will help people give you better answers. For example, what's the topic of the essay? Are you writing to a pre-defined format or style guide? What grade level/university level is this for?

comment Good book on writing for children?
Narrowing what you're looking for might help get you better answers. Alternatively, if you don't know what you're looking for in terms of skills imparted by a book like this, maybe this question needs to focus more on outlining what your writing skills are now and asking what new skills you need to develop. Asking for a list of books, on the other hand, is an obvious list question and runs the risk of being closed.

comment Do script readers start at the beginning?
@Kit - Not at all. Your answer was about paid readers/reviewwers, mine's about studio readers. A different anomal altogether.

comment Do script readers start at the beginning?
Caveat: This answer is based on research, reading, and the few conversations I've had over the years with scriptwriters. I have no experience myself as a reader. If we have any studio readers here, I'll gladly defer to their expertise.
