Cameron, I've rewritten your title to reflect your post a bit more closely. If I've gone too far, feel free to roll it back.

@NeilFein I absolutely disagree. This is about how to write. There are no details about the plot of the story here.

comment Name of a subsection and its parent section clash
You mention "(pre)categories," so maybe "Partially ordered categories and (pre)categories," or just "(Pre)categories." Essentially, you look for something else in the text to help differentiate the major section head from the subsection.

comment simultaneous dialogues in novels and short fiction

comment On mastering the art of writing descriptive passages on certain weather conditions
Go outside. Take something with you which allows you to take notes. Observe the weather. Write down notes about it. Write down images, metaphors, sensations, and literal descriptions. Go back inside and polish your notes. Repeat until satisfied.
