comment What does an internship for freelance writing entail?
This question is very vague and hard to answer; it would certainly depend on the company and the exact position. Did you ask them during the interview?

comment What is the difference between yellow journalism and sensationalism?
On hold until we get more information.

comment What is the difference between yellow journalism and sensationalism?
If this has to do with writing/journalism, it's on-topic, but just asking for a definition isn't on-topic here. Kyle, can you please give more information as Matt has requested?

comment Immortal cultural themes
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about literature, not writing or a related field.

comment How do writers differentiate personal beliefs from the messages of their writing in public discourse?
@AnonymousAuthor - While it may be a bit early in your career for you to worry about this, that doesn't mean you can't ask the question. Welcome to Writers, and thanks for the good question.

comment Writing a 15-page summary
Welcome to Writers. We have some people who know more about academic writing than I do, but I'll ask the obvious question: Does your school or department have any guidance on this, like a style sheet or a style guide you follow?

comment Character development and suspense
Can you tell us more about why you're asking? This question feels like a homework question, not a question about writing.

comment Report writing: should I use ® © symbols?
You could find out what other report writers have done and suggest an entry to your university's style guide. In that case, the suggestion in Kitkhain's answer might be a good way to go.

comment Can non-interactive stories make an audience feel guilt, and if so, how?
A couple of questions: Can you clarify what you mean by "non-interactive" here? That term makes me think of fiction that's anything but a game or a choose-your-own-adventure book. Also, are you concerned with plays, movies, TV, books, or webcomics? (Or are all media okay?)

comment Can non-interactive stories make an audience feel guilt, and if so, how?
Welcome to Writers! In keeping with the Stack Exchange aversion to list questions, I've done a light edit of your question so it's mostly asking for techniques, and examples are welcome but not the main point.

comment Can anyone provide any recent examples of characters which first appeared in a short story, eventually becoming major TV or Film properties?
This is off topic, as it's both a list question and not about writing or a related field. Closing, but I'd suggest looking at our site tour. There's a Movies and TV site that might help you, but you'll need to focus the question to ask it there.

comment Using colons and semi-colons in dialogue
I'd like to suggest that people answering this question focus on using colons and semi-colons in dialog and not limit themselves to these specific examples, which are only here to illustrate a point. I think it'll make it more useful. "Feed a man a fish," etc.

comment What is an alternative for “the size of a pack of cigarettes”?
It's not about being subjective. The community has decided that it doesn't want to answer these questions. A request to allow questions asking for rephrasing suggestions was proposed and the community voted against it. We also voted against allowing questions asking for help generating text (i.e., what to write about).

comment Amazon statistics, who is selling how much
Possibly a duplicate of, but definitely related to this: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/1483/…

comment Where can I find sales numbers for books?
Title Z is down, but perhaps there are other sites that track this data?

comment What's the best way to make a catchy slogan?
Requests to rephrase or critique text are off-topic here. Please see our site tour for more information about how to write a good, on-topic question for this site.

comment How to self-publish?
This question is incredibly broad. Can you narrow this down? As it is right now there's a risk people will vote to close as too broad.

comment How do I write in the language of a strict, serious character without using too much exposition?
I did an additional edit pass to fix some distracting typos and other errors. I also rewrote the title to make it more apparent what your question is; did I get it right?

comment 2 points of view at the same time
General critiques are closed on sight here, but I think you're asking how you can keep the different characters/points of view distinct and clear. I've edited your question lightly to make this more obvious, but feel free to please make any further edits you feel are needed or correct anything I've gotten wrong.
