Scrivener questions are on-topic here, since it's a speciality writing tool.

comment How long does it take to write a 1000 word SEO topic?
This issue is one often faced by freelancers. While this site is the best place to ask about the writing end of the issue (which you've done), you might also find guidance at our Freelancing site, but it would be more about the business end of the transaction.

comment How long does it take to write a 1000 word SEO topic?
Sorry, my last comment wasn't complete. I don't think this is a duplicate, but it is a category of question we get asked every so often. To anyone who wants to discuss this, I've opened up a thread on our meta site about the issue.

This question, or variations on it, gets asked every so often.

comment How to make travel stories interesting?
I highly recommend this book: Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction. In particular, it spends time on the differences between fact and, well, fact presented in story form.

comment How to format the transcript of a telephonic conversation for email?
I'm unclear why you're asking this question. Is there a reason you can't just use one of the templates you can find on the web?

comment How do I find flaws in a character I'm building?
Taking your character trails and projecting them to their logical conclusions, keeping in mind a person's self-interest and need to feel good about themselves, will generally reveal some slightly darker side to a person. This answer makes a lot of sense.

comment How do I find flaws in a character I'm building?
Welcome to Writers! This is a good question about character construction, and I've lightly edited it to be a bit of a better for for this site. Asking for specific suggestions is a bit on the edge of what's on-topic here, but asking for the how in a problem is much more answerable and lends itself to answers that are more useful to others. Please feel free to add to my edits, or revert them if I've changed something critical that should be left as it was.

comment Use of the Oxford comma
The question is about the Oxford Comma - comma use in lists before the "and" - and not about general comma use.

comment Influence of The Protagonist's Birthday
This question is very vague, a discussion-starter rather than an answerable question. Is there some reason you think a birthday should be a part of your story?

comment Fallacy of relative privation? Propaganda device? Unobtrusive slander? What is it?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not a writing question but a word choice request. Asking what to write is off-topic here. Also, coming here while trash-talking another SE site isn't going to earn you any good will or sympathy here. I suggest you read this.

comment First page of the Diary - Quote
I'm afraid asking what to write is off-topic here. Closed, but please feel free to edit if you have a question that's more on-topic.

Do you think you could expand on exactly how writers are expected to use social media?

comment How do publishers expect authors to use social media to promote their books?
Welcome to Writers! Stack Exchange Q&A sites like this one work a little differently from discussion forums; answers need to directly address the question asked. Can you expand on how writers are expected to use social media?

comment How would I keep using past tense with resulting actions
To the user who flagged this as possibly off-topic: I think this question is probably okay. It's about using grammar as a tool, not about asking if a specific phrase is grammatically correct. It also uses its example phrases as exactly that: examples. While the answers get a bit involved with grammatical issues, I think this is more about how to use a grammatical principle than just correcting a phrase's grammar.

comment IS vs ARE question
This is off-topic for multiple reasons: Asking for rephrasing, asking about whether something is grammatically correct, and asking for proofreading are all firmly off-topic here. Have closed this question, but you might consider browsing the English site. I imagine this may have already been addressed there, and you may get an answer that explains the grammatical issues more thoroughly than we can.

comment How can I establish ownership over my work?
I think that, if you need what is specifically legal advice, you'd get more comprehensive answers on the law site. However, that won't fix the problem, which is, with all respect, your fears; addressing those is the only way to fix this problem.

comment Is there a name for the **writing** tic/technique in which the **writer** inserts an aside beginning with “well”?
I think people are addressing your question in terms of spoken English for a very good reason: The examples you give are all dialogue, so of course the answers will follow suit. If this is unacceptable to you, then I don't understand what your question is asking. (Yes, the downvote is mine.)
