comment Magic or No Magic?
Done, please feel free to further change my edit if I've missed the mark. For future reference, please note that placing a question on hold merely disallows answers until it's reopened. It has nothing to do with not wanting to help people.

revised Magic or No Magic?
Reworded to make the question less about asking what to write and more about changing from fantasy to general literature

comment Magic or No Magic?
Yes, I think that asking when genre elements (like magic) are applicable and when they're forced would make for a fine question. Will do a light edit to your question and reopen.

comment How do screenwriters incorporate song scenes into a screenplay for a musical?
@MissMonicaE I meant commenting in the deleted answer I turned into a comment, but this is okay too.

comment Magic or No Magic?
Nina, Welcome to Writers but I'm afraid this question falls afoul of our community's ruling against questions asking what to write. If you're able to edit this so that it asks a more specific, answerable question, we'd be happy to consider reopening it. (Also, if you haven't already, please feel free to look at our site tour.)

comment What is it called when an author uses vague words for concrete concepts, “hedging”?
Thanks, I think your edit adds writerly depth to a question that's really just asking for a word.

comment What is it called when an author uses vague words for concrete concepts, “hedging”?
Hello! While this is a good suggestion, would you consider expanding this a bit more than just the wiki quote? It'd make for a more comprehensive answer.

Lily, welcome to Writers. We're looking for answers longer than just one line; perhaps you could expand on this?

comment Punctuation help needed — first-time novelist
"Shouldn't it be up to people to decide whether they want to go to the trouble of answering or not?" What's on-topic is up to the commmunity, and the community has decided that proofreading requests are off-topic here, You're of course free to revisit the issue on our meta site if you like.

comment Writing Multiple Protagonists
Welcome to writers, and thanks for an interesting question. Multiple protagonist books can easily confuse the reader, but when they're done well they can give the reader great insight into characters. I've done some editing on your question to make it clearer what you're asking, instead of just asking for tips.

@RJo this question will link to the question once it's migrated; sending it over right now.

comment What structure should I use for each article in a technical travel guide?
I'd suggest that answers focus on how to develop structural guidelines for a book like this one.

comment There is too much beauty in this picture I can persevere
Closed because asking us to rephrase a piece of text is off-topic here. You might have better luck asking on the English Language Learners site, although they have their own rules.

comment Mobile writing: can you write substantial works on a Psion palmtop or similar?
This is about using a writing tool, but there's no specific question here. Do you have particular concerns about this machine as a writing tool? Asking for general impressions isn't the sort of question that does well here; for information about why that's the case, please have a look at our site tour.
