So, I was doing a critique tonight. And it was the person’s first book. And I was writing a bunch of the same things that I’ve written on a million other critiques since I started on Wattpad. And, it occurred to me that I keep giving people the same advice—advice that nobody gave me—and advice that beginner writer’s NEED. So I decided to put some of it down in a book, although I’m guessing most people won’t read it. Haha

But the title pretty much says it all...

Preach 👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌 this is some crucial advice 👏🙌
Isn't "talking to the readers" called "first person perspective"...?

Can anybody go check out my start of the story and tell me if it is good....???
Exactly. Don't tell me your problems, show them to me so that I might feel sympathy towards your character.

I wish more people did this on Wattpad. It's like 'Oh, hey! Great synopsis!' *reads first couple of sentences of chapter 1* "My alarm clock went off. I opened my eyes and stretched. Then I brushed my teeth." *Stops reading* 'Not this again...' ;~;
