For most of my life, I used the same common writing mistakes that plagues inexperience authors.
I had no clue about the mistakes because I thought I was a good writer.
However, whenever I submitting my writings to literary agents and publishers, I was reject every time.
I came to realize… I wasn’t as good a writer as I assumed to be.
So I decided maybe I needed some help with my writing.
First, I took a copywriting course through http://www.AWAI.com. I learned how to be more conversational in my writing, and create attention getting copy.
After all, the reader wasn’t interested in me. They were looking for the benefits of a worth while entertaining read. Or wanted a particular problem solved with useful information.
Then I subscribed to New York best selling author Jerry Jenkins (Left Behind Series) blog https://www.jerryjenkins.com/. I discovered how often I used the word that and how I used too many descriptive adjectives, and that people don’t grunt, snort, and howl. Plus…
I get to the point now.
I also read The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler.
To say the least, I was amazed how much I didn’t know about writing and how I am still and will always be learning.
