Discover some of the writing tips from Wattpad Star and formerly featured author of 'Trapped'.

I  have completed my share of beta reads and critiques for new authors on and off Wattpad and many of the points I have noted are often repeats - something that I used to find in my own writing as well, but have stopped (or tried to stop) over the years. 

It's hard starting out, but it's even harder when no one points out your mistakes. I hope you will find this guide useful to detect some of those problem areas and pick up tips on how to avoid common mistakes. Writing is an art and takes practice. There is no corner cutting - you can only improve if you keep at it.

Interested? Well, then let's explore some of the common traps I've seen...
