Don’t let friends or family critique your work. I learned the hard way, either you’ll take their criticism and tell them to shove it up their nostrils, or they’ll be so honey-coated-sweet you won’t actually get a critique. That is a very good tip because I've had friends and family make fun of my work like not long ago I made a post about how my brother made fun of me. I also have good tip my tip is that when you"re writing you can't just write what your teacher would like. Instead put yourself into the story you must be the words. You must understand the story. That's my tip and it's one of my favorites.
