8 Common Creative Writing Mistakes

8 Common Creative Writing Mistakes | Litteris | Scoop.it

I see most mistakes as an opportunity to either learn something new or to make an improvement to a piece of writing. While mistakes can certainly be frustrating and rewriting to weed out mistakes can be laborious, each fixed mistake is a step toward a more polished piece of writing, and every time you resolve a problem in your writing, you become a better writer.

Very useful links, but I found myself feeling angry that Goodreads was somehow letting down users by policing the site rather better.  As a publishers who has been trolled on both Amazon and GoodReads, i' pleased about the change in policy.
