comment How do you describe a methodology of writing?
This requirement reads like it was made up by people who never wrote a book. Or at least never finished something. Best thing to do is to ask them, not us.

comment Seeking information regarding the use of a period between the day, month, and year formatting

comment Using ideas from other authors without infringing copyright
Ideas cannot be copyrighted. I think in its heart this is a dupe of: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/3928/… - @Monica: I doubt that the OP wants to write fan-fiction.
