Why Genuine Love Matters When Writing

When I wrote what I considered to be my first “novel,” I adored it. I wanted the entire world to read it, and I wanted to get it out as quickly as possible.

I have since come to realize that it was horrible, with no plot, no concrete character development, nothing but overdone tropes, and genuinely had no memorable moments, but I’ll say this was due to my young age and general inexperience.
