comment Is muteness appearing without explicit reason acceptable?
@Psicofrenia I agree; it's an individual response. But that would mean the character suffered emotional trauma. I'm simply saying that isolation does not automatically mean trauma for everyone.

comment Works of fiction containing non-related but constantly alternating narrative streams?
Not exactly a duplicate but pretty close: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/8514/… Also see George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, aka Game of Thrones, which switches narrative stream at every chapter.

comment Is Sherlock Holmes public domain for use in a story?
So far as I know, the Holmes stories are in the public domain. When ACDoyle himself was asked by a contemporary if she could write a play in which Holmes marries, he famously responded, "You may marry him or murder him or do as you like with him."

@CLockeWork if you search for "Scrivener" on Writers you'll find a lot of people singing its praises in detail.

comment Can Articy Draft be used to write a book?
@CLockeWork I'll second Scrivener; it's very flexible and allows you to keep multiple kinds of media all in one place. It's designed for writing (prose, screenplays) and allows you to export as other formats easily.

comment Declaring short forms in an essay
I vote for shortened titles rather than authors, because I will never ever remember the authors after I turn the page.
