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Some of those outdated story plots include:
- Character waking up at the beginning
- Character wanting to be a writer
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.
