comment For Fantasy Stories, Should You Include a Map At the Beginning of the Book?
@Ethan The Blade Itself was one of the absolute worst pieces of awful writing I've ever had the misfortune of being tricked into buying. Throughout the entire story, nothing happened. There was no plot, no antagonist, no conflict, and only one character who was even half-decent, and he was a rip-off of Tyrion Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire. It was absolute drivel.

comment How much leeway can be expected from an editor regarding my preference for nonstandard punctuation?
Honestly, so long as you use these kinds of constructions well and don't inundate the reader with them, they are more powerful than they are jarring. I rather like most of your examples, and it's important for a writer to have his own voice. That being said, I'm not a publisher and also have not been published, so I don't know the answer to your question.

revised What's a normal word count for a children's novel or collection?
came to fix "children't", stayed to lessen subjectivity

I just noticed some fun irony in "When an action is performed" while I was re-reading :P

comment I have written my first novel and I think it's ready. What next?
+1 Just for linking me to Query Shark. I'd give you a couple more +1s if I could, but unfortunately I only get one vote.

@Aaron Upon looking at the page again, it seems like "Dying?" might be the only one with this problem.

@Aaron You can still make specific open-ended questions instead of vague ones. As it stands, the vagueness of the questions makes me spend a disproportionate amount of time figuring out what to answer and not enough time thinking about the answer itself.
