So You Want to Write a Book? Crucial Advice for the First Time Writer

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...

I agree with you. After reading  so much stories in the fist person on wattpad, I've gotten used to that way of writing. However, writing a story in the third person is actually better since it's more professional, and you get to see what all the characters are thinking at the same time.

Wow man...
                              I m sorry if my previous comments were slightly insulting.
if you want a book like this I recommend "the beginning or everything-everyone gets a tragedy" (I'm sorry I just cant pass up a chance to recommend a story)

I understand not wanting to read the character talking to you all the time trust me but sometimes it's fun to here them tell you their stories. So you have someone to look up to.
