comment What is the proper way to add Creative Commons licensing information to a book?
Village, could you please confirm that the work you source is in fact under a CC-BY-SA license and not under one of the NC or ND designations? (There are different types of CC licenses which have different rules on use. The link you provide is for a CC-BY-SA which is one of the least restrictive and I'd just like to verify that before answering.)

comment How to effectively jump from one period of time to another in a short story?
I've also seen a single centered # or * used to indicate a scene change in manuscript format. (Not to be confused with ###, which can indicate the end of the story)

comment What binding and paper should be used on a self-printed novel?
@JSBᾶngs: We answer questions on printing, publishing and self-publishing all the time. Despite the title, the OP's question, "How do I print just one copy of my book in a format I can take on the bus?" is a valid and important question. I know because when I worked in a print shop, once a month somebody would come in and want us to bind their poetry collection, or 6 copies of grandma's cookbook or have us bind their unpublished novel in leather. Printing just one copy of a book is a problem writers face. This is exactly what we're here for.

comment How do I maintain flow and interest when handling numerous plot threads?
George RR Martin employs a similar technique. Each chapter is simply named after the viewpoint character and the action continues to progress from their point of view. Other viewpoint characters will generally be discussed and those events will either be summaries or previews of other events that have been/will be discussed. It keeps the action moving and flowing and keeps you interested in what comes next. Granted, Martin is juggling a lot of stories and it can turn into a hot mess at times but his style is still worth looking at.
