comment Should I turn my enormous novel into a series?
@laurenipsum, that is not how I understand myself ;-) The distinction of art vs popular fiction is one that is inherent to a work from its very conception. They are different mindsets, and fundamentally different approaches to writing. Art writing -- I use these terms only for a lack of better words -- does not concern itself with any of the rules we discuss on this site. Think of Marcel Duchamp's ready made urinal versus a beautifully painted trade paperback cover. Art has a different context than popular art, follows different rules and achieves differebt goals.

comment How to choose a good/suitable pseudonym
@Jay If you write erotica or porn, you might want to publish this under a pseudonym even if you don't write children's fiction. Porn is something that will get you ostracized in most communities. You don't want it to be associated with you, no matter what else you do in life. So it is not a real counter example against publishing everything under one pseudonym or name, but rather it is an example of proteting your person from attempts at destroying your social life.

comment Clear steps for developing a powerful inner conflict
It works if the readers can follow you and the consequences for each decision are harsh.

comment How to name characters of unspecific nationality and race?
To me "Captain, Ranger, Ace and Probey" sound somehow English. No?

comment Why do writers sometimes use so much description?
How does this question relate to writing? It seems to be about existing works, which is off-topic here.
