Here is a list of six tips to keep in mind when writing your story.
1. Break up long sentences and paragraphs to make your words easy to read.
2. Avoid using 'ly' words where you can.
3. Each of your main characters needs a goal.
4. All characters have secrets, use them.
5. In a novel, Don't head hop during a scene. Better to wait until the next scene, or chapter before you switch POV.
6. Conflict is the driving force of the story, make sure you keep readers turning pages.
