comment Is this character generator useful?
@justkt I'm saying "thinking" is counterproductive as it stifles imagination and tries to turn the act of creation into a reliable mechanical procedure. "Why not have a tool for it?" By all means go ahead! Use one if you feel it helps. But can you imagine Robert A. Heinlein using a tool to invent a character? Do you think Death from The Sandman could have been created with a tool? As for writer's workshops... You wouldn't actually follow advice you got in a writer's workshop would you? The whole point of a writer's workshop is to learn what not to do.

comment How much sex is allowed in a non-romance novel?
"Things like this are best left to the reader's imagination." Why, exactly? What is your reason for believing this?

This is the answer, yet it's the second-lowest rated response (as I write this). Except I would say write the story the way it needs to be written, and leave it at that. Skip the worrying.
