I never thought I’d be writing this.

But in three weeks, I will be celebrating my one-year anniversary as a writer on this platform.

Back then, in October 2019, Medium literally saved my life. It gave me much-needed hope and became the “light at the end of the tunnel.” 

It taught me how to write, allowed me to have this extraordinary life I am living now, and connected me to great people across the world.

I’ll soon write a separate honest piece about some of the things I learned. But sometimes, it’s easier to learn what not to do then what to do.

These are the mistakes I made myself. They are also the mistakes I saw many new writers on this platform repeatedly make.

So — if you’re still in your first year on Medium, pay close attention.

These are the mistakes that can “make or break” a newbie writer.
