comment How do you call the non-writing parts of creating a text?
Preparation. Or you mean Meta-Writing, but that's more about writing itself and not about the plot.

comment How to travel in a government restricted setting?
More trouble than is needed? Wait? What? Do you really ask for less conflict? In a fiction story? You are doing it wrong. I mean it. No, it is no good idea to use less conflict. Especially not if it is handed on a silver platter.

comment What is the purpose of version control?
Merge? I have no idea. I've never tried to merge Word files automatically. Just the idea makes me shiver ;) Honestly, I try to avoid Word docs.

comment What is the purpose of version control?
Let me add one more time: You can disable white space changes (at least in the diff tools I know). And it can be a binary format if you have a comparison tool for that. If you use Tortoise for Subversion, then Tortoise can show the differences of Word documents (using the inbuilt mechanisms of MS Word).

comment What is the purpose of version control?
I want to add that some of the benefits (like merging) are based on the possibility to show the differences between versions. So you have to use a file format where that is possible. I.e. either no binary formats or only binary formats you have a comparison tool for.

comment Do novels that are set in not-so-famous countries sell less?
You know that many people do not know where famous places are, even though they made vacation there? Now I have to mention that your question is very vague (and opinion-based). Sell less than what? Fantasy novels where the world is completely made up? Crime stories playing in Venice compared to horror in Timbuktu? I promise you if Stephen King chooses Santiago de Chile as location for a book, it will sell, no matter if any of the readers know where Santiago is.
