First let me start by saying ‘we all have bad habits’ and my job here is to point them out and hopefully give you some advice on how to break them.
I should know, because when I started writing, I had some pretty bad writing habits! I went from no writing experience to developing a four book fantasy series without a writing plan or any experience writing in general. I stayed up way too late writing, didn’t move around enough, overworked myself to the point of exhaustion, and overall had little to no balance in my life as I taught myself how to write.
Needless to say, after publishing the first two books in the series, and although they both received multiple five-star reviews, I wasn’t happy with the overall quality of the product. By the time I finished writing the second book in that series, my writing had improved immensely, to the point really, whereas I read the first bit of my debut novel: I cringed at every page. So, me being me; I pulled them from the shelves and instead of doing an edit or an overhaul; I re-wrote the entire series! The first book comes out late 2020–look for the Legend series, a prehistoric epic fantasy. There, I threw in a plug, and hopefully only throw in a couple more! Okay, that is enough about my bad habits. Here is a list of bad habits, and my recommendations on how to break them.
