That definitely helps, thanks.

comment How to write a “strong” passage?
I think this is very close to being a general critique request.

comment Printing by the Publisher
Welcome to Writers. I have to ask: Respectfully, without seeing your contract, how can we know the answers to these questions?

comment How do I demonstrate ideological differences between characters who are politically not too different?
The question is definitely clearer and more specific now.

comment How do I demonstrate ideological differences between characters who are politically not too different?
I'm unclear on what you're asking here; this question also is veering very close to asking what to write, which is off-topic here. I'm going to place this on hold until it can be edited into a more clear, specific question.

comment Writing content for website
Welcome to Writers! I've placed this on hold until we can help you make the question more specific. The purpose of placing it on hold is to prevent answers until the question is edited. Stack Exchange sites don't work like traditional discussion forums, in that questions need to be specific and answerable, not a call for discussion. (More about that in our site tour.) I know this can be frustrating, and I'm sorry your first experience with our site has been one of being bounced from site to site. This question is about writing, and can almost certainly be narrowed a bit and reopened.

Critiques are now off-topic here. Please see the links in the on-hold text above for more information about this.

comment Headline method - How do I write The Economist-style headlines?
Reading the Economist style guide would probably be a good step in the right direction. (Which is, incidentally, the funniest style guide I've ever read.)

Proofreading requests and grammar are off-topic here. Closing.

comment Fiction writing: is using Git overkill?
I'm more concerned that this question is vague and soliciting opinions, but it's also clearly a duplicate. Closed.

comment Structuring a novel like a television or graphic novel series
Closing for now, but please do edit this so it's more specific. In its current form it's going to attract vague answers.

comment Structuring a novel like a television or graphic novel series
What is your question, exactly? Do you want to know the drawbacks and advantages of this approach? Asking for examples and general advice isn't the sort of question that works well here.

Can you provide a source for this?

comment Writing a short documentary about a medical clinic
Melissa, your answer looks suspiciously like spam. I've removed your link for now, but can you go into more detail on this? Answers that are basically just a link elsewhere are heavily discouraged here.

@MonicaCellio Thanks.

comment How can I structure a novel to contain short stories?
You may also want to read The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury. While the book is a classic (and deservedly so), it's also a good example of how to not structure a novel: The stories have little to do with the main narrative, which is a bit too obviously a framing device.

@JohnSmithers What do you think of Tom's edit? This technically answers our concerns, but the question isn't substantially different.

comment Any advice on how to learn DITA for technical writing?
I think this question is about programming, not writing. What do our tech writers think? Leave this open or close it?
