comment What's the modern way to handle gender in tech writing?
I would prefer dropping the pronoun from the first example, as in The user chooses a password, then types it in the text box.

I propose "zhe" as the gender neutral animate pronoun! Ok... I literally just thought of it, looked it up and was very surprised to find that this exact spelling has been proposed before (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender-neutral_pronoun#Modern_solutions).

comment What's the benefit of using invented languages in-story?
+1 for "not only sound different, but feel different." I think most authors probably invent words or language in their books for artistic license, to better paint a picture of their characters' race, ethnicity, or culture.

An interesting angle, somewhat existential; thanks for the insight. (I had to look up diptych!)

Not using a plot to avoid similarities and not having a plot yet due to a sort of creative block are two different things.

+1 very helpful, though some of your tips may seem obvious to many writers, I think having them pointed out to me may help me focus on what I need to expand on.
