We all know that genre fiction tends to follow certain patterns and it’s our job as writers to put a new spin on those patterns. Even so, there are storylines (even with new twists) we like to see time and time again, such as the secret baby, the reunited lovers, the Cinderella stories, and many many more. So my question for you today is a simple one:
What story premise (or “generalized” foundation for a story) do you NEVER get tired of seeing?
My answer is easy and it hasn’t changed since I was a child: I’ll never tire of reading about the little cinder girl getting her prince. :)
