comment Show Don't Tell when Recounting Events
This line reflects (perhaps more eloquently than I) exactly the problem that I was facing: "However, the challenge you have here is that a lot of what Lana is going through is internalization and that is difficult to act out." Thanks for your help.

comment Show Don't Tell when Recounting Events
You have to remember, the majority of the sentence is an event that has already occurred in a previous chapter. I believe in this case, your first three points of critique are not in-line with the question at all. I asked for a discussion of technique but from you I got a full breakdown critique. The only 'new' information is about Terrence's reaction, and I believe the description of John puffing his chest out is enough of a call-back to the previous chapter. I don't need to describe this event again in detail; doing so would bore the reader.

comment Normal structure for Dialogue paragraphs
Thanks for your answer. I rarely come across an opportunity where this kind of thing is called for; this may even be the first case since I began writing. I see your point about about the sentences and the dialogue seems all the more cohesive. Thanks again.

comment Scrivener: Editing the source files
Nope. This is without access to the software entirely. On Google Drive if I look at the .scriv file, it's folder. I can go in and see various other folders, each containing my chapters/scripts etc. If I modify these files within the .scriv file outside of access to Scrivener, what'll happen?
