comment Very long sentences: personal style or just bad writing?
I would actually say that's rather good writing. Stylistic. So long as it doesn't dominate the entire narrative, in which case it would definitely take its toll on the reader.

comment How can I develop my ideas?
@Standback I just want to note that I keep coming back to this question, and every time I do, I pause to take a distinct pleasure in your placement of ellipses in that sentence.

comment What qualities should a good metaphor have?
The above "example" is no longer applicable to my edited answer, but I'm leaving it up since it's a pretty cool simile anyway.

comment Switching from past to present tense?
If you want the Nobel prize, you should probably put the climax before the flashbacks, or in the middle. That's artsy. They'll love that. And make sure to borrow a line from a famous poet for your title. If you want to go all the way, screw around with your punctuation. But that takes real nerve.

comment A cross-[What] kind of romance?
I have a hunch the exact word you're looking for may not exist, being rather...*limited*...in its usage. You might just have to originate a term yourself.

comment A cross-[What] kind of romance?
You know, it's funny you ask this question. I'm writing a story with the same premise-- a human falls in love with a holographic AI. Great minds...

comment Balancing loads of equally-important characters
Ah, but if the other characters are boring, I skip them.
