@user16780 Merciful Freya, I had no idea. I'll make sure not to use that as a generic in the future! :D I've edited my answer above.

comment How do I describe the effects of extreme psychological trauma on my protagonist?
This. There's no substitute for research. If you're going to write about extreme psychological trauma, you're going to have to find out what extreme psychological trauma does to people.

comment How to start writing short stories
Hi, and welcome to Writers. What do you mean by "you can't focus on the subject"? what happens? Are you distracted? blocked? Start writing about something else?

comment Realistically Writing newly-deaf characters
@JasonHutchinson While Keller was courageous, she lost her hearing as a toddler, not an adult, and she was also blind, so there's an entirely different set of coping mechanisms to deal with that.

comment Help in deciding setting
This is very broad. You will have to develop more of your plot, your characters, and your theme to determine the setting. Some plots are not dependent on setting or can be adapted to different times (c.f. Sherlock Holmes), and some only work in a particular time period (WWII stories). Until you figure out more of the story you want to tell, we can't help you to figure out when and where it should be told.

comment Referencing real and fictional people/characters in novels - legal implications
Sherlock Holmes stories before 1923 are public domain in the U.S.; details in stories published after that date are not public domain yet.

comment Third person multiple pov in a crime mystery
GRRMartin is using all third-person and he has so many POV characters that he does have character names in chapter headings.
