comment What are effective ways of working with a nonfiction editor?
I'm a little bit puzzled. Why do you repeat your answer instead of closing the question?

comment Should you read your own genre?
@Kate: Or maybe the problem is, how you define 'quite a bit' and 'success'.

comment Should you read your own genre?
@Stand: It's called market analysis. If you do not know, why people buy the cars from the other manufacturers, what they do wrong, what right, you are running out of business fast, I promise you. @all: You can change car seller to surgeon, not keeping track of the medical research results. You can use any profession. Writers are not different. The OP will fail miserably if he keeps going that way.

comment What is a good methodology for researching a historical novel?
@Panda: I tried to tell you, that there is no answer. If you want to visit these locations, do it. Look at them, describe them. If you do not want (e.g. you hate travelling), don't do it. You already have an approach that works, even if you think it is totally arbitrary. Do you have a picture/vision of the scenario/world you want to write in? I bet you have. If you really need a methodology (I normally run, when I see one), then take your approach and make one out of it. Yes, it's good enough. Trust yourself.

comment What are the key skills for a new technical writer?
To all fiction writers reading this post: Your writing does not need to be perfect either! (Even if you are going for the Pulitzer.) Never let perfect be the enemy of the good. (Ted Kennedy IIRC)

comment Asking for exam results
I wouldn't leave off "dear" and "sincerely". Not if I write to people I barely know.
