Why is it important that the reader know it's not a dream? Also, welcome to the site.

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
We don't have any questions about editing books, but we do have one about writing books: What are good reads about writing?

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
If you want style guide links, these questions may be of interest: What are the most common style manuals? and What are widely-used UK-English style guides?

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
What kind of resources are you looking for, exactly? Style guides? Books about editing? Lists of editors to hire? And wasn't this originally meant to be about poetry editing?

comment Naming my character
@LaurenIpsum Good eye, these two are very closely related; but I think the two are different enough. (Answers to one don't apply to the other.)

comment “This” vs “that” in past tense narrative
This is essentially a rephrase request, which is off-topic here. Closing, but feel free to edit this into something more substantial.

comment How much detail is considered enough for literature review of a research paper
I'll leave this question to the tech writing experts, but: The journal to which you're submitting will have submission guidelines, and they'll likely also mention a style manual to follow. These resources may help with formatting, at least. (Here's an example, though it's not in your field.)

I think the only time to have commas, etc at the end of list items is if the entire list makes a sentence.

comment “And” vs “with” in description lists
Sorry, but single-word requests, phrasing, and re-phrasing questions are off-topic here. If you can edit this into a more substantial question, we'd consider reopening.

comment Poor man's copyright techniques
There are parts of the world where mailing yourself the manuscript will provide some protection, but the US isn't one of them. Registering the copyright will help if you end up in court.

Close votes will expire on their own in time. @what I think that's pretty much the only way to answer this question.

comment The etiquette of updating News Posts - Help please!
@LaurenIpsum - Good find. That question's answers are focusing on the business reasons, if this focuses on the journalistic/ethical reasons, I think it's okay on its own.

Can you define "correct"? What are you worried about, specifically?

comment Is the word “becoming” being used correctly in the following metaphor?
I think that this is off-topic as per this meta post but I'm not sure if it'd be okay on English. Leaving it for now until I find out.
