4 comments on “The One Trope I Love To Hate

  1. I am glad you wrote about this. I have been wanting to write about my least favorite trope — murder — but since so many of my friends and acquaintances write murder mysteries, I haven’t mustered the nerve. My hunch about these handy, overused tropes is that they all too easily become ruts. The plot wheel settles into one and then rolls in a predictable direction. The writer doesn’t have to think too hard because hey, the plot’s going forward. OK, you’ve inspired me. I am going to write about murder-as-trope . . . 🙂

  3. Love triangles in my opinion provide texture to a plot. I am the one referring to them from musicals and those fare well. I have not seen or read enough love triangles to get overly bothered by them
