comment Attributing Quote to Fictional Characters (Who are based on real people)
Tell me if I get this wrong, but you are not really attributing to a person here. You are citing a source. Your source then have to care about the correct attribution. I'm aware that a book source does not look as cool on a poster than a person's name, but well, it would be the correct way imho.

comment Do publishers use LaTeX to produce books for the blind?
From the software side a spot is a spot. And if I get Braille correctly, then there is only one depth for a spot (not several embossing depths which carry different meaning). So Latex and the Braille package don't care at all. It only matters if you send the output to a printer or a embossing machine. But I have no idea how a embossing machine looks like or works. Google?

I would have assumed, that difference between printing and embossing is made by the hardware you use for the job. If the dot of the Braille syntax is reproduced as a toner/ink spot or an embossed point depends on the machine/printer. Or I get this question wrong.

comment Multiple characters without names: how to address
Why don't you want to name your characters? If you do not choose the most obvious path, this info may be important to give you meaningful advice.

comment I'm a new author and I have three projects with complete drafts. Which one should I focus on first?
One or two years? WTF? What do you want to do? Rewrite them to death? You are a new author. What do you know about rewriting? I tell you: nothing. It's different from writing. With a 98% likelihood you will mess up your stories. Pick the first story you have listed here, get through it and fix inconsistencies in the story and spelling/grammar mistakes. Then give it to a trusted beta-reader. If the beta-reader doesn't find something significantly wrong, publish it. This way the second draft should take two to four weeks, not years.

comment Character development in a story?
Many authors develop their characters before starting to write the story. So they know how they characters should behave throughout the story. But that has nothing to do with developing the character in the first chapter. I think you misunderstood your teacher.

comment Rights over a fanfic character not in the original work?
That's not true if I understand @what's link correctly: "The court held that Anderson's treatment was a derivative work, and therefore Stallone held the copyright on that work."

comment Does the word “Its” get a capital in The Economist Style title case?
If "Economist Style Guide" refers to www.economist.com, then "its" is not the only word they would write lower case.
