Here is writing tip #2 for new authors.
Write your own story. And be proud of it. Don't show it to people before it's published and say what do you think and then start changing your story to fit their wants and needs. It's not their story. It's YOUR story. If they wanted the characters to do this or that then they should have written a book.
It's your story. Don't let somebody talk you into changing it.
