comment What is a good daily word count goal?
That's a tip I heard before from a respected writer acquaintance. "Stop when you have one thing left to tell." +1 great advice

+1 for "1,000 every day is better than 5,000 once every two weeks."

comment When is it okay to tell?
You still seem to be contradicting yourself. Telling is more compressed than showing, in a poem every word counts the most, but the compression is also important?

I'm confused on your third point. You say a novel will need more telling, but then that a short story needs to compress the information? Or do you mean that the novel must compress the information to make room for the real plot?

comment Is there a special software for writers?
Would you mind paraphrasing the tips in your answer? We should not merely be a repository of links, but actually have the answers to the questions on our site.

comment What is the difference between writing in the first and the third person?
There have been experiments in second person but they are often awkward at best. Most of those "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories are written in the second person.

It probably has something to do with riding "on the seat of your pants"
