True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learn'd to dance. - Alexander Pope

Character note: Never short on Opinions and overambitious Ideas.

comment software to write book with lots of photos
Are you looking for software just to write the book, or to publish it? That is, are you going to get it professionally laid out when it's done? This is important because professional layout software recommendations are very different from writing software recommendations. Whether you're just writing it or if you're also doing the final layout yourself, we need to know.

comment Does this entice the reader to continue?
@NeilFein Yes, that's part of being coy and withholding information: by using words and phrases the author knows we don't have the context to understand, it creates the appearance of being upfront without actually providing information.

comment Horror Stories for Children!
Might be a good idea to split this up into multiple questions, so that someone with a good answer for point 1 doesn't feel like they also have to come up with something for point 3.

comment Variation in humor among ethnic/cultural groups
Although Teal'c's joke appears to be a bizarre alien kind of humor, it's actually a genuinely funny joke that's lacking one crucial bit of context: what a Setesh Guard's helmet looked like. This makes it an even better example, though, as a lot of times what seems like different styles of humor are just the same kind of humor with a different context.

Spelling the character's name right would help a person find the example being referenced.

comment Can you use a company's name as title for a short story?
This is a legal question, and the answer will probably depend on the legal system in which you reside/publish, so it's unanswerable until you tell us what legal system you're asking about. And since Stack Exchange is not designed to provide legal advice, I suggest that only answers citing a reliable outside source should be taken seriously.

comment Trouble with punctuation and style of a sentence
@MikeC. Glad it was helpful! I thought your question wasn't really a grammar one. Maybe you could edit it to be more about editing and less about the parts of sentences so it can be re-opened and get other citizens' takes on the process too?
