Thank you so much for the review!
I'm really looking for someone to point out the mistakes for quite some time now, so I'm really grateful for your review! To be honest, this is the first review I received despite writing for two months now. Because of that, I kept thinking that there should be glaring mistakes in my writing, which I hoped someone could point out(Since I can't point things that looked too natural to me).
Anyway, I'm probably slow as a turtle in realizing some of my mistakes(There's probably a lot I still haven't noticed) despite writing for two months now. But I guess, at least I think I'm starting to improve little by little.(I really hope I am though.)
In any case, for the dialogue part, most of them in the early chapters deal with a formal tone so I was trying to portray a Noble-like speech that uses many words. But I guess the difference in her speech in casual and formal tone is not that very far?(I've been writing that way, but I'm not sure if the readers do notice it) Anyway, thank you for the suggestion about the speech regarding lies! It'll surely help me in the future!
About the tense, yeah, I do realize it in the prologue, which I've yet to edit again (Now that you actually mention it, It really is in the present tense. I'm sorry I overlooked that. Completely my fault). I've been writing in the first person past tense for the rest of the chapters(Unless I missed some again).
For the contraction, I don't think I can learn that immediately, but I guess as I write more I can get down to it and be more familiar with it as I keep my writing pace. I do hope I learn it sooner than later. Again, thank you for that advice!
Lastly, for the purple prose. I do think that describing details about terrains to be unnecessary unless it portrays a historical value or some sort of importance, so I guess that's a plus? In any case, I find characters to be more important than setting most of the time since they are the ones that set the story, but that's just my opinion.
Again, thank you for pointing things out and for the suggestions! I'd be happy if I can have more hints regarding those errors, but I guess that's asking too much of your time. Again, thank you so much for taking your time to read my story!
Edit: I'm planning to rewrite the early chapters after finishing the first arc so I can edit them in one go. Is that a good idea? or should I start editing again now?
