TEN BOOKISH PEEVES
1.Too many typos. I have never read a book that didn’t have some grammar mistake or typo, but if the story is rife with mistakes, I won’t read it.
2.No research done on the topic. No one is perfect, but when it’s apparent that nothing was researched, the fiction is sometimes irresponsible and hurtful to those who have experienced what happened in the book and make it seem less than the actual experience.
3.Male and female characters that sound the same, i.e. dialogue, internals.
4.TSTL. Too stupid to live heroines or heroes. My critique partners jump all over me whenever I have one of those moments. I recently read a highly rated book where a seasoned cop left his loaded guns on his front porch step at the request of a teenaged boy.
5.Too much narrative. It drags the story. During my rewrites, I try to remove as much as possible.
6.A male voice that sounds like a valley girl. Guys do not think like women, and women shouldn’t expect them to.
7.Male voices that all sound the same: sarcastic, testosterone infused, machismos.
8.Male characters that women instantly fall in love with who are either abusive or have the psychological profile of a serial killer.
9.POV switches in a scene or chapter or too many POVs. Unless you’re Barbara Kingsolver, don’t use too many because it dilutes the connection the reader has to the story.
10The expectation that a writer is perfect. We aren’t. My critique partners catch problems with my work all the time, and I thank them when they do, but I work really hard at doing my best.
