15 COMMON MISTAKES NEW WRITERS MAKES AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

Writing is really hard and can be overwhelming especially to new writers. In this post, we present 15 common errors new writers make and how to avoid them
1.   When your book is based on a terrible concept. Some concepts just don’t work. For instance, a book for adults that discusses the life history of the author’s parrot.

2.   Books that just don’t meet up with expectations. For instance, a thriller that just doesn’t thrill or comedies that isn’t funny.

3.   Writing for a different era of people. For instance, you may want to write like James Hardly chases thinking you would sell like them. No, they wrote in a different era and built their market from there. You need to understand the era that you are in.

4.   Without a unique selling point, an angle or a concept that is immediately captivating, its likely your book would be dropped you need to create an original concept.

5.   You have only one chance to make an impression. A lousy presentation will not cut it, for instance, manuscripts with poor punctuations, weird fonts style and awful spelling will not make it.

6.   If your prose lacks clarity. The first job of a good prose is to communicate. Without meaning, your book would be thrown out.

7.   Writing is never economical because you need to prune and prune ruthlessly until you get the book you can present. If you have 12 word sentence that can be written in 9, prune immediately. The excess makes no sense.

8.   Be moderate with extreme words like scream, overwhelm, fury, misery, torture in the first page.

9.   Avoid clichés completely.

10.      Keep control over your point of view. Know when to transition from one character to the next. Keep one point of view per chapter.

11.      Descriptive writing is actually essential. Every reader wants to be transported into an unknown world where the can feel the emotion’s pf the characters. Without descriptive, the readers feel they’re in a featureless world.

12.      Literacy writing has to be what it is. You must demonstrate to the reader a flawless story. For instance, a fiction depends on a beautiful plot, without it you wouldn’t show them the story. Read Pulitzers, booker prize type of work.

13.      You must be able to connect with the characters that you are writing about. They have to be believable.

14.      When you think you’re done, you need to work, edit and rework again. Check your manuscript for any structural weakness.

15.      Writers who create a world without fear will lose it’s readers. The best novels usually have the threat of death hanging over every scene. This captivates the readers and keeps them suspenseful.
