I'm a writer that's been banging their head against the wall for several years attempting to learn how to make a good manuscript. Now that I've achieved an acceptably mediocre skill level, I'm beginning my journey toward publication. First stop: agent town (hopefully). Can't wait to learn with ya'll! Nice to meet you!

Look into some books about writing.  The nuts and bolts is one thing, but other concepts such as proportion and sophistication are important as well.  There are many books, but if you need just one and only one (besides Strunk and White's The Elements of Style) I would suggest Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Browne and King.  Who knows?  It might even be on the Kindle by now :smile:
