comment What are the copyright limitations for adopting a ficitonal character's name as your Pen Name?
As a side note, you could ask her for permission.

comment Ending a PhD thesis by saying “there is more to do”
A combination of your answer and kbk's is what I'm going for. "This is the first step" is a better sentence, but even with the original sentence, placing it where you have makes it much better. That's why I'm accepting this answer.

Thanks. I understand what you say, and I need to think it over to put it in appropriate terms.

comment Ending a PhD thesis by saying “there is more to do”
Alright, so if you read this paragraph which ends with possible future directions, does it leave a positive impression on you? Because if it does, I don't have to add that sentence at all.

@LaurenIpsum, I believe I already have. I included the actual paragraph if it helps clear things up.

comment Right usage of “P.S.” in Emails
An example: Dear professor, Something something about the conference that you are making me organize. I did this and that and I think by that time everything would be ready. More and more talk about that conference. Sincerely, Shahbaz. P.S. I'm half-way through my thesis

comment Right usage of “P.S.” in Emails
Sometimes I use P.S. even though I know from the start I want to say it. But what I'm going to say in the P.S. is so separate from the email, that it's just clearer if you keep it separate. That's the kind of sentence that you should probably be sending another email just to say that. But being a short sentence, it's not worth a hassle. If you want to put it in the body, you may write it as a By the way, write before signing. So putting it in the body doesn't really make it more organized.

comment Would it be weird if I write “a simple sample something”?
@Joe, you are right. I thought I could use build as a noun, but the more I think about it, the more I realize I am wrong!

@Joe, thanks for the suggestion. The option doesn't "build" the module per se, but your second suggestion fits. Is there anything grammatically/semantically wrong with my sentence, or is yours just a more common phrasing?

@NeilFein, I already got my answer, so no need to worry. I am not a native English speaker and there would have been no way on earth I would known of the word "alliteration". That was what "feels weird" and "kind of strange" were trying to describe. Feel free to edit the question.

@LaurenIpsum, haha, well I guess it's not that bad!

That could also work! I already chose to change sample to demo, but I'll remember this for another time.
