comment Original writing is lost when using other people's ideas?
@Thezil I think it just depends on your definition of "single-person work". If I am writing a book and I get stuck, and someone gives me a good idea, it is still my book. Heck, someone could say to me "Write a story about a boy who learns that he is actually an alien and must now come to terms with everything he knows being 'wrong', and also the rest of the world must deal with the fact that aliens exist among us", and I could write that book, and I'd be the author, not the person who suggested it, even if I didn't have the initial seed idea.

comment Do readers care about any kind of mystery? What makes them prefer one from another?
Wouldn't this depend on the reader? Not everyone likes the same stuff.

Why do you feel you need to translate the names at all?

comment Is it okay to publish a book at a young age?
I've read books published by teenagers before. They're rare because usually young people aren't that good at writing - it takes years of practice. But it's definitely possible.

comment How to google the ungoogleable?
If you are so paranoid about your search history, does it even make sense to write what you've learned in a novel? Surely your name will be attached, or at least your publisher will want to send royalty cheques somwhere.....

comment How to assemble recipes without plagiarism?
@Vzzdak hence why I mentioned it as an example of regional differences ;) It's a common problem when internet recipes refer to products by names not everyone understands, or using measurements not everyone recognizes, or by implicit pack sizes when pack sizes are not ubiquitous.

comment How to “defy” physics on a sci-fi?
+1 for "fans are often very concerned". Anyone who's studied high-school chemistry should know that you can't just invent elements. Iron Man 2 annoyed me a lot. Elements aren't magical.

Also this question is unanswerable without knowing what jurisdiction you're in, and may be unanswerable without a lawyer.
