comment How do you casually address a child in the Midwestern dialect?
Seems to me this question would be more appropriate for English Language & Usage

Thanks for the tip. I just joined Scribophile this month but I haven't posted anything for critique yet.

a bit late to the party: a TV guide summarized an airing with "creatures must work together to destroy a ring and defeat a lord"

comment Is muteness appearing without explicit reason acceptable?
@Shkeil I suggest rephrasing it in a way that focuses on whether the situation would be believable/acceptable to the readers, or whether they would likely be confused and expect a medical explanation.

comment Roadblocks in my story: The Gladys Tribe
It's an interesting premise, but what you have here is mostly worldbuilding questions that don't necessarily pertain to creative writing. I'd suggest posing questions 1, 2, 3, and 5 to a community like reddit.com/r/worldbuilding or an RPG forum.

comment Should a long flashback be written in first or third person?
Thanks, I will try that. I'm leaning towards keeping the third-person narrative too.

It has certainly been done with some success. Fight Club, for instance.

comment Is it so bad to end up with a “done before” plot?
I'm a actually re-reading The Hobbit now and I didn't see it until I got to the last bullet point. ;) Cross-genre "retelling" probably isn't as likely to elicit the "I've read this book" response.
