  • Start by creating your character. Then decide what sorts of things happen to that character. Use your understanding of the character to decide how they react to these things. (Be realistic, the reader has to believe your character really would react that way.) Finally, use your own life experience to decide how things turn out. If your own life experience doesn't cover that situation try talking to people who've been through that experience. The best way to improve your grammar is to read a passage from one of those novels, close the book and try writing the same thing but in your own words. Keep trying until you can express yourself as well as the original. If you're not sure ask a friend to read both and tell you which they like better.

  • FIRST: you need to put a SPACE after a period and before the next letter/word. That's not just grammar, it's common sense.

    Another biggie is a PARAGRAPH BREAKS versus the wall of text that's your current style.

    Thirdly, who the h*** in their right mind is going to *show* you how to write your book; wouldn't that be the same as *writing* it?

    For f***'s sake, take a beginner's creative writing class and go from there, if you feel whatever it is you have to say in a book is important enough to be written down, in the first place, and will interest others enough to be picked up and read, in the second.

    Oh gosh, good luck~
