comment Defining a Prologue
ooh, yes, good point. Strictly speaking, none of a book should be boring, but particularly any part of the opening, I agree.

"Time plots of the surface area of her costumes." Now that would be an entertaining chart to design.

comment DIT:Is it legal if a write a book about an artist?
Is this a biography of Miley Cyrus's rise to popularity from a marketing perspective, or a marketing primer using Cyrus as an example? Those are two very different things and would fall under different sets of rules.

comment Do the guidelines for clear style that we use today get in the way of rhythm?
FWIW, while this is quite lovely, my eyes glazed over several times while reading it. Brevity and clarity aid in readability. Scripture has room and time for poetry. Most workaday writing does not.

comment Do Decimals Bounded Between 0 and 1 (inclusive) Need a Leading Zero?
This makes sense. I never thought about probabilities and baseball scores, but you're right; those don't need leading zeroes. Otherwise yes, use one.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. You might want to browse other questions under the "legal" tag to see if there are useful answers already posted (although caveat lector, I don't believe we have any lawyers on the board).

Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We're not a discussion board. We require practical, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. "What to write" is off-topic for us. This is brainstorming and too localized, and unlikely to help others in the future. Sorry.
