I’ve just been thinking about how much I’ve learned in the few months since I began submitting to publishers. The first story I submitted was plagued with the dreaded head hopping. I had no idea what that was until a lovely editor informed me. I cleared it up right away in my next manuscript.
1. Have distinct P.O.V
2. Don’t use physical descriptions for a person when in their P.O.V
3. Do not use the same word over and over in the same sentence or paragraph.
Those were my main issues at first that I think I have gotten past with the help of excellent editors.
What issues were/are you troubled with as a writer?
