comment How to name the characters of your story?
Accent and apostrophes give a certain "foreign" feel very easily, but come hardcore fantasy readers are a bit sick of them, so consider the possibility of overdoing it. Some readers like names they can unambiguously pronounce in their heads. Remember, don't pull the reader out of your story by stopping them to work out a difficult name.

comment How do I find an agent?
And don't forget that you don't always need an agent (in fact, depending on the agent and your situation, it can be a lot worse than having no agent. See this: deanwesleysmith.com/?p=720 and this: writingexcuses.com/2010/01/31

comment Self Editing tips/tricks
Agreed, though I'm always amazed this works so well, and horrified at the wasted paper.

comment Is there a special software for writers?
Not exactly an answer, but I imagine the ideal software for writers would be a plugin to Word (and/or OO Write) that adds features. Most of what's useful is already there.
