Not acceptable stories

People always say writers can write whatever they want, but I doubt that’s true.

Some publication companies don’t accept “cliché” or “unoriginal” ideas anymore, because it’s harder to market just another vampire story now. Which, in turn, lowers the endless possibilities that writers can write about.

Some of those outdated story plots include:

  • Vampires
  • Werewolves
  • Mermaids
  • Character waking up at the beginning
  • Character wanting to be a writer
  • Etc.

But some cliques still – interestingly enough – catch readers’s attention, such as humans destroying the world either intentionally or unintentionally. These stories are still marketable because readers find them relatable.

So, perhaps, if writers want to market their story far, they have to write what’s more retable.

    1. True, I agree. 100%. Writers write better when they enjoy the topic. But I also think those aren’t the stories they market and sell. Sometimes, those stories are just for the writer, which is an interesting topic. There’s so many stories out there that we may never know about.
