Common mistakes checklists

Check the sidebar- I posted links to the "common mistakes beginning writers make" lists I've collected. These lists come in handy on your own work and on other's work if you are in a critique group. Some are from established writers, some from agents, some from editors, so they do vary- read them all to get a broad view.

For some reason, much of what I found was from romance writers, and who cares? Good writing is good writing. Period. Genres and markets aside, poorly written prose is something to be avoided, whether it is the leering ne'er do well in the darkened alley or crazy Uncle Gilgamesh who happens to grow fangs once a month.
