    Perfectionism, pessimism and inexperience

    Hi. I'm Leonardo and I'm 22. I've always been an awkward person; the kind of awkward that would rather go to a library than a bar, or substitutes socializing with gaming. Perfectionism and pessimism were traits that accompanied me all my life. Naturally, this manifests in my writing too. I...

    Ever since I started writing my book, despite the many challenges involved in making that idea become a story, the thought that always kept me up at night the most was how to advertise my book and how to promote myself as an aspiring author to a potential audience that does not know of my...

    self-conscious about novel idea

    This is going to come off as rambling more than anything else. But its been on my mind and I feel like I have to share it, for my own sake.

    How can I get an extreme fluffy writing style?

    Yeah! I know, what you are going to say, “Write! Read! And practice!”. I did it, and I didn’t stop to do it yet. But it doesn’t work. However, a fluffy writing style is important. The reader doesn’t want eyesore because you wrote too many words. So, do you have other tips than what I wrote and...
