What mistakes did you make as a beginning writer? Not only grammar, but in terms of plot, planning, characters, writing etc

I've never been too good at description, so I can't say purple/flowery prose. I think my grammar was the worst (mixing up the tenses, forgetting the rules of speech etc) and I thought it was okay to dive straight into a novel - massive mistake, for you beginners out there, never ever do that. Build your way up the ladder, as I did when I realised what I done wrong, and I surely got there.

Mary-Sue main characters for sure. I even based most of them off myself, something I don't even consider anymore. Some of them actually shared my name.

Description--even now-- has never come that easy for me. I picture it exactly in my head, but then when I have to write it down on paper, it's a lot harder to describe. But it used to be a lot worse. The majority of my writing was dialogue, unless it was something like: "She walked away,"

The "Show, Don't Tell" rule. My entire story would be: "He was sad. She was angry."
