Writing is so much fun, and my favorite part is the first draft because it can be as sloppy and crappy and just filled with horribleness as I'd like. So all of my first-drafts do the exact opposite of the tips mentioned below. But, by the last draft you'll want to have a manuscript that readers will find enjoyable.
When I first started writing, the only reader who found my stories enjoyable was my best friend Bonnie and that's only because she's really sweet. The problem was that I made the three mistakes listed below. A lot of newbie writers do. So, I've analyzed these three mistakes and added a tip or two on how to correct such errors.
I hope these are helpful tips!
1. Dialogue that sounds too perfect
2. An overabundance of inner-monologuing
3. Backstory is info-dumped on readers
Backstory is, of course, very important to the book, as it shows why the character is the way s/he is. But when backstory is delivered info dump style, it pulls readers out of the flow of the story. It can even become confusing.
