comment Why end sentences with commas instead of periods when the sentence is in a quote?
@TommyMyron If that were the rule, then "Can you see her?" asked Jason. were wrong, because the quotation mark ends a sentence just as completely as a full stop does. The only correct answer is that you use a comma in "She's late again," mumbled Jason. because that is the convention in English. Other languages have other conventions for the same construction (e.g. in German the comma is after the closing quotation mark, other languages don't even use quotation marks, etc.).

Do you mean, how much you write every day, or how fast you pace your story?

comment The “destroy a day's work every nth day” method of improving one's writing - sensible?
@Standback To my your downvote and criticism are too harsh. This is a great question, and answers can be useful to others. +1 from me.

comment Is it possible to publish a single copy of a book?
Print-on-demand printers are often of medium to low quality. Depending on how much money you are willing and able to spend, you can pay a traditional typesetter and printer and book binder (or a vanity publisher to handle it all for you, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity_press) to create a high quality, valuable single book (though I would always create at least a second copy for my own collection).

comment How can I ensure my POV character's writing isn't too sophisticated?
@eliyahu-g In first person writing, all dialog is (remembered and) rendered by the first person narrator. No matter if a novel is in first or third person, all dialog is always narrated by the narrator.
