||There are a lot of common mistakes that are made with drafts. Here are a few you must watch out for:
- Writing about yourself or someone/something you're close to
Whether it is yourself, a family member, a friend, an employer, a mentor/business partner, writing about topics close to you (and the people close to you) is discouraged as the article you will create may not be neutral.
- Copy-pasting material
You must write the article in your own words, or it may be deleted.
- Not citing your sources
Articles without independent reliable sources usually get deleted within days.
- Overly promotional language
Terms like "leading expert" and "ground-breaking technology" sound great when promoting a product, but they do not belong on Wikipedia. Let the facts speak for themselves.
