There are a couple of common writing mistakes that will instantly peg you as a novice to any agent or editor, but are really easy to fix if you know what they are.

I can relate to this whole heartedly. Im also afraid one of my room mates will see me doing this and think I am insane. Lol

Maybe this is my problem. I focus too much on the desired outcome and forget to enjoy the writing process. I need to just forget my goal, get lost on the way, and enjoy the journey. I just know ill b pleasantly surprised at the end.

The trick is to not use them in their stereotypical way. Ex: "A hard knot clutched at her throat as the little orphan mewed closer, a dirty hand outstretched."
