In answer to Standback's list of questions, here's my opinion on whether they're suitable here. For a question to work on Writers, it has to be about writing, writers, or, in some way, the making of books.
What exactly is “Conceptual Writing?” - This question is vague. If it were asked, we'd edit it to be more about Writing or close it. And it's more a philosophical question than one about writing.
What effect on literature has the introduction of eBooks and eReaders had? I really, really want to have a question like this here. But it is about reading, not writing.
Rhetoric vs Figure of Speech - Sure, bring this one on in. It's about the mechanics of techniques for writing.
How do limited edition book pre-orders work? I'm on the fence about this one. Sure, let's bring it on it!
Notes placement - Bring it!
How much influence do authors have on their titles? could use some better answers, but the question is clearly on-topic here. Bring it!
Source for literary terms? Off-topic here, it's about reading, not writing.
Literary criticism term for character espousing author's ideas? This is a writing technique, even though it's from the POV of the reader. Bring it!
