comment How can I (or can I?) create a Canva.com cover for a CreateSpace 6“x9” title?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because we are not tech support for Canva.com. Please ask them.

comment Modifier adjectives correct usage
Please fix this to be in words of one sound or less. This is too long to grasp. And what do you want to ask of us? There is no point to solve here.

@KitZ.Fox That would be a croissangst.

comment How do I keep a journey sequence going?
+1 for "tension." Traveling in itself can be a plot point because they can be out of supplies, get lost, being chased, or exposed to the elements. "If all else fails, chase your hero up a tree and throw rocks at him." (I don't know the source of the quote, but it's catchy.)

comment How to write sexual/romantic scenes?
I realize that "You should try to get some sexual experience" is not helpful advice, but sometimes people write about tabs and slots and acts and recovery time and it's painfully obvious that the writer has never been involved in that physical act. So at the very least try to find a beta reader/editor who has experience with the act(s) in question and can tell you if you're being realistic. Nothing breaks an erotic spell like realizing "but you can't physically DO that!" or "WOW, that would really hurt."

comment Using chapter breaks
it doesn't always have to be chapter break; you can literally put in the three or five asterisks, or three returns, and have a scene break if you want to stay in the same chapter.
