comment How do you make page numbers in google docs?
While it could be argued that this is on-topic here, I think it would get better answers and be better maintained on Superuser.

Also see, Are literature questions appropriate on Writers.SE?.

comment How to show a crying/sad scene without using sentimentalism?
Helen, welcome to Writers beta. You may want to have a look at our site tour if you haven't already. We prefer answers that are longer and more comprehensive; would you care to expand on this? If not, I can change this into a comment for you. (New users can't leave comments, but keep answering questions and you'll have enough rep to leave comments yourself in no time.)

comment Creating An Original World
If folks think this should go to Worldbuilding, I suggest voting to close. The mods can send it there but I'd like to see some community buy-in first. My concern with this question is that it's extremely broad.

comment Where are the six honest serving men?
Thanks for editing, it helps a lot. The question is clearer, and now it's obviously about writing. I've removed poll-like language, changed your summary to a direct quote to help clarify further, and reopened.

comment Where are the six honest serving men?
Placing this on hold until it's clarified; I, too can't understand what question is being asked.

comment How do you describe the sound of someone being dragged across the floor?
Asking what to write is off-topic here. Closing for now, but if you can edit this into a more answerable question (see our site tour for more on how to do that) we'll consider reopening.

comment Referencing in Word does not show publication year in MLA
@what It's a grey area; questions about writing-specific tools are on-topic. While that doesn't include general word processing software, I think the MLA features in Word are specific enough to qualify. However, this question would probably get more answers on superuser. Will cast the final close vote and send this over there.

comment Is there a language technique for factual, philosophical style writing?
Questions about existing literary works are off-topic, unless they relate to a writing project. Placing on hold, but if this is about using the technique in your own writing, let us know and we can edit this and reopen.

comment In science writing, what to call the body in relation to the brain?
This is off-topic here, but I believe it's a valid single word request on the English site. Sending it there.

comment Starting my essay with one word (MLA)

comment How Can Get email Custom Header when email reply read using ImapX in c#
This may belong on Stack Overflow but it probably needs a bit of cleaning up as well. Sending it there, but it could be placed on hold there pending changes.

Welcome to Writers; I think this is more on-topic on the English site in our network; sending it there.

comment Asking people permission to publish their letters.
Am I correct that your question is asking if you should ask for permission as a matter of courtesy? That's not a question about writing or even a legal question, it's a question about manners. I don't think this is on-topic here.

comment How Does the Publishing Process Work?
I left that vague, thinking it's a bit of a detail, but I can see now how it's an important detail. I'll clarify it now.
