Writing a book can be a lonely task. You end up lost in your plots, your characters and once you are finished, you can’t quite appreciate the quality of the work you’ve done. Anyone can write a story but writing a book requires skill. Redundancies, word overuse, telling more than showing, excessive use of adverbs, lack of character depth and development, unresolved plots are all common mistakes writers make.
