comment TBBT season 8 tenure position
@D.Tanya - I'm not sure, I think they favor plot explanations over summaries but it can't hurt to ask them. Also, maybe this season 6 episode is the one in question? bigbangtheory.wikia.com/wiki/The_Tenure_Turbulence

comment What are the advantages of different date formats in resumes and CVs?
@Carl I'd avoid those in a formal business document like a resume, but I suppose each field has its own tone and expected level of formality.

comment How can I find Indian names that will be accessible to my readers?
While we normally don't allow research questions here, generating names is something every writer faces and I think this question might be useful to others. Unless anyone objects, I think this is a good question.

I think this may be on-topic on the Law site; have migrated it there.

This question is unclear; if it's meant to be a general critique, I'm sorry but those aren't on-topic here.

Agreed this is off-topic here, but I think this may be on-topic at Health.SE. I'll try sending it there.

comment Writing song lyrics
While song lyrics are on-topic here, this question is extremely broad. Placing on hold for now, but can you edit this to ask a more specific question?

comment How do I explain personal details to my professor without being inappropriate?
@Standback - Let's see what kind of answers this attracts, but I suspect that specifying an appropriate level of personal detail might be better done by the Academia site.

comment How do I keep a journey sequence going?
This question is very, very close to asking what to write. However, @TommyMyron has provided an excellent answer.

comment How do I avoid tradeoffs with showing vs. telling?
@Standback I think the focus of this question is somewhat unclear, and it could do with some editing to that end. Maybe edits that bring it in line with the answers pointing out the active-vs-passive voice would help, although since I think OP's basic assumptions need to be addressed as well - showing-vs-telling isn't an either/or thing like they assume it is.

This is pretty broad and rambling; are you specifically asking about first/third person, or are you looking for general writing advice?

comment Describing a Traumatic Silence
@KaiMaxfield I'm not a mode there or even a frequent user, so I'd ask in their chat room. (You have sufficient rep there.) But I'd emphasize the part of the question asking for a term over the part that talks about writing.
