Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write blog has had a lot of interesting posts to start the year, and this one about plot clichés is pretty funny – and easy to relate to.
You can find the whole post HERE, but below are a couple of the things editors don’t want to see:
“Anything to do with the heroine falling down or being clumsy.” Variation: “She’s daintily eating potato skins and some sour cream doesn’t quite make it into her mouth. The hero leans over and dabs at her lips, smirking over how cute she is.”
“Stories that start with the heroine driving back to her hometown and thinking about all the backstory that got her to this moment.”
