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 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.

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.

@Tave Multiple fonts are regarded by some as unprofessional. Probably best to find another solution if possible.

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.

@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.

comment How to format multiple inner voices, differentiating the text from dialogue? and omnipresent inner voice
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.
