Mistakes You Can Avoid

Over on PubRants, an agent has a couple posts up about mistakes beginning writers make. Not your standard stuff, pretty informative to read. A lot of it boils down to “show, don’t tell,” but in ways you might not initially pick up on. (I particularly like the second one: having characters in the story tell the reader about something that happened… because it feels like showing, but it’s really not.)
