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...

So you want to write a book?
                              We can do it down the hall...
                              Writing it is overdue...
                              I've started to talk to the pictures that I've drawn! 
                              (I'm sorry... I had to)

Is anyone available to give some constructive criticism on my book? I'll comment my thoughts back yours. Thanks for the help @Tamaradw
I actually prefer third person know ..
                              And also , not all successful stories are great , as you see , Fifty Shades of Grey is successful

Am just a reader and i can promise you that the practice of talking directly to the audience isn't interesting and i don't normally read such books,, i found them boring and less interesting
