comment How Does the Publishing Process Work?
While people could (and have) written entire books on this question, explaining at a very high level how traditional publishing works is certainly an answerable question. Unless other users object to this, I think this question is fine.

I'm sorry, but this is off-topic here. Closing for now, but please feel free to edit. More information on this site is in our site tour.

comment How to format multiple inner voices, differentiating the text from dialogue? and omnipresent inner voice
@Tave Multiple fonts are regarded by some as unprofessional. Probably best to find another solution if possible.

comment Converting Word pages to book pages, for novels?
Nick, your answer is offensive and rude. Its a rule that users on this site need to be nice to other users. I've edited your answer so it's in line with this requirement. Please see that any future contributions you make here are considerate towards other users.

"utterances that are not verbal (e.g. telepathy, communication implant)" - Sorry, I must have missed that before.

comment How to google the ungoogleable?
@LaurenIpsum - In my opinion, this is a duplicate of this question, since the answers so far could be applied to each other with minimal modification.

Nathan, thanks for the interesting question. Have edited your title to make the main point of the question more obvious.

There's no need to be nasty towards this user; remember it's a site rule to be nice. Also, this doesn't address one of the main points of this answer, which is multiple internal voices.

By the way, the example you use, the "Thomas Covenant" books, are an old favorite of mine but also contain some of the most pretentious, self-absorbed writing I've ever read. (That's part of their charm, I think.) So if that's an influence of yours, you might want to form your own opinion on this matter. Let's take this to chat if you want to keep talking about it, we're getting a warning about this extended discussion in the comments.

Sounds like you found a "how-to" writer with an axe to grind. That seems like an overly broad generalization to me. First person can be accessible and effective, and third-person can easily become arty and pretentious.

I'm not sure where you've heard this. First person is very common in genre fiction. Do you have statistics on this, or a source? (Perhaps this is a separate question?)

I think I understand the problem, and have edited the title to reflect this. Reed, please feel free to revert my edit, or further change it.

comment Can you write a pro-racism book?
The question is vague and speculative. Why are you asking? Is it legal in what country? Are you planning such a book?

comment Trying to make a gun making scene realistic
Agreed this is a better fit on worldbuilding. I'd close this and migrate it, but it seems it's already been asked there, so there's no need. Closed this as "too broad" even though that's not the real reason. If you'd like to edit this to be more about the writing than the research, please go ahead and we can re-open it as a variant question.

comment Is a fictional story set in another world harder to get into?
Welcome to Writers! It would help if this question were clearer about what it's asking. For example, the title seems at odds with the text of the question, which seems to be asking for worldbuilding suggestions. If help building a fictional universe is what you want, I can send this to the worldbuilding site. However, if you're concerned with the believability of an imaginary world, that's on-topic here; let's edit the question to make that more apparent.

comment How important is being well read for a writer
Agreed, this answer, while interesting, doesn't answer the question. Burning Flame, I'm sorry that your introduction to Writers is so negative! This isn't a discussion forum, where posts can ramble a bit and lead to interesting tangents, but a question and answer site. Answers here have to directly answer the question. You might consider having a look at our site tour for more information.
