@KitFox Meh, there's a logic there, I agree, but if you don't care about readers, why bother publishing?

comment How to stay motivated while rewriting?
1) but if you don't like to rewrite, how do you fix the "obvious errors"? 2) how do you know what an "obvious error" is? How do you define it? 3) if you don't spend time in rewriting, how do you learn how not to make "obvious errors"? Basically, "spellcheck and publish" doesn't lead to any kind of self-improvement, and you will never figure out how to become "readable."

This question should go to Super User, as it is a "tech support" question.

comment How to stay motivated while writing a story, after the initial burst of enthusiasm?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We are not a discussion board. We require practical, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. There's a seed of a good question here, something like "How do I stay motivated to do the hard work of writing after my initial burst of enthusiasm?" If you can edit your question (and title) more along those lines, so it can apply to others, the community can help you.

@NeilFein I figured. That's why I left a comment but not a close vote.

comment Children's Dialogue
Sure, if you aren't looking at them, there's no way for me as a parent to tell. @Watercleave is suggesting that gesture, movement, and body language are part of dialogue, so if you aren't watching the kids while they're talking, you're going to miss part of what you're supposed to be researching.

comment Killing the protagonist - should it be done?
I'm not sure how you can say this is "impossible" when there are half a dozen answers here (and I've linked to two related questions) giving explicit examples of how it is possible.
