comment Transcibing a fictional pictograph based language
Yep, I totally agree that your general point is a good one.

comment Transcibing a fictional pictograph based language
Nitpick: it’s a bit inaccurate to see the Br’er rabbit stories as “written in dialect”. They’re a roughly phonetic transcription of a dialect, intended to convey that dialect to people who don’t speak it natively themselves — in the same way that parlay voo frossay? aims to convey French to English-speaing readers. As such, they’re rather different from what it looks like when the dialect has an established written form of its own. A better example might be the poems of Robbie Burns, written in Scots.

comment Killing the protagonist - should it be done?
Tess of the d’Urbervilles is also worth mentioning. It fits exactly the approach you describe as “…at the very end of the book. If [her] death can prove something and then the book ends immediately after that… that could work.” I think general consensus is that it works pretty effectively in Tess.

comment Checklist for making sure your writing is Atomic?
I’m not sure this is quite on-topic — it seems to be about content-structuring in a specific style of technical writing, not specifically about language or usage. It might be more on-topic for writers.stackexchange, perhaps?
