comment A question of tenses
Is there a reason you have set yourself this task, other than to attempt some sort of feat? If it's excellent writing, it will work. But it will have to be truly excellent.

comment The “destroy a day's work every nth day” method of improving one's writing - sensible?
You want a rule that will take away the difficult and unpleasant task of editing your own work? This sounds like laziness to me.

comment Do I need to cite quotes when conversing casually with friends?
It's only considered plagiarism if it is substantial portions of copyrighted text. If you see an article in the New York Times that says the sky is turning green, you can go online or anywhere else and say "Hey, did you hear the sky is turning green?" What you can't do is copy and paste large portions of the article, claiming them as your own. And all direct quotes should be attributed.

comment Should you specify camera action in a film script?
Since link rot has triumphed in the former comment, here's another link to the Breaking Bad script I referenced earlier. You'll notice how it reads almost like a novel. And Gilligan certainly gives camera directions, because he can and because they are integral to the picture being painted before your eyes.

comment Software for determining verb tense
Can you tell me how such software could distinguish between "I read the book" (present tense) and "I read the book" (past tense)?

comment Writing Multiple Protagonists
Try reading The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin and then ask yourself if you think having multiple protagonists is still a good idea. It will take you months, but we'll wait.

comment What are the stylistic advantages/disadvantages of each narrative tense?
What do you mean by "tense"? Are you referring to past vs. present, or something else? I suspect you really mean voice here, but it would help if you describe what you're looking for a little more fully.

comment How to begin Ghostwriting Fiction?
Have you ghostwritten fiction before? If so, try going through the same channels you used to get that work. If not, the only real way to do that would be to have published fiction yourself, in which case your agent would be the person to consult.
