comment What was the explanation in Greek mythology for the absence of their deities?
John Rogers, creator/producer of the TV shows Leverage and The Librarians, has pretty much this answer for excessively fanwank questions about details and background: "Whatever makes the story more interesting for you." I'm sure there were "in-universe" reasons why the Greeks didn't meet their deities at the local agora, but those reasons were not germane to telling a good story.

comment Are there any other gods that permenantly lost an eye, other than Odin?
the DV was absolutely not mine (my overall DVs for four years on SE are less than half of one percent of all my votes cast) and my comment was a joking answer to your question. If I thought your question was poor enough to merit a DV (and it's not), I wouldn't then add a joke about it. :)

You might try zmags. As a reader I hate it, but it probably does what your client wants.

comment Should "plot" or storyline be the main determinant of what goes into a story?
@PaulA.Clayton That's a good description for putting cut material into a slush file, as I described. I like the metaphor! :)

The term for this is "Kill your darlings." The idea is that the line/bit/scene/character you are most in love with is probably there because you love it, not because it serves the story.

comment Numbering pages and subsections
@SamThorne No, I don't think you can have two independent automatic page numbering variables with one being section-dependent and the other being document-dependent. Either a page is named 34 or it's named D-12, but the program can't label it both at once. One of those you have to type in manually.

comment What's a nice title for a persuasive essay arguing that affirmative action is not helpful?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. Requests for single-line rephrasings are not on topic for us, but they are okay at English. I'll ask the mods to migrate.
