comment Examples for books that don't use (traditional) chapters?
@muntoo It took me forever, even knowing what H2G2 stood for, to figure out how H2G2 stood for that. What a terrible abbreviation.

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.

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.

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