comment Is it a good idea to start each chapter with a snippet from a fictional book?
@Robert So many people looked for The Book of Counted Sorrows that Dean Koontz finally had to collect all his little epigrams into one volume and publish the thing.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. Why did you copy this from SO and paste it here? It's not on-topic for us, and you have an answer there.

Welcome to Writers. Asking for professional services is off-topic here. Please take our tour writers.stackexchange.com/tour and review our help center writers.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic to see what kinds of questions we accept. I've marked this as a duplicate because you're asking for the same service; it doesn't matter which movie.

@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.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We require clear, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. This is a "what to write" question, and it would be applicable only to your situation, so it's off-topic for us. Please take our help tour writers.stackexchange.com/tour to see what kinds of questions are on-topic here.

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.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. This is not on-topic for us. SciFiSE does have a story-identification tag, but we don't.

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.

GRRMartin is using all third-person and he has so many POV characters that he does have character names in chapter headings.

comment Realistically Writing newly-deaf characters
@TommyMyron not a bad idea, but not as a primary source — you don't know if the other authors did their research.
