Two Common Manuscript Mistakes that New Writers Make

When submitting your manuscript to agents or publishers, you want to put your best foot forward. Literary agent and book development consultant Claire Gerus points out two common manuscript mistakes that can prevent new writers from making a good impression:

1. Overwriting: don’t bog down the reader with too many details too soon. Start with something exciting; remember, you have to capture attention within the first paragraph of the manuscript.

2. Grammatical errors: with so much competition in the field, writers have to be at the top of their game when submitting manuscripts and do thorough editing beforehand.
