Four Things (In My Own Personal Opinion) You Shouldn't Put In Stories
1. Curse words. It usually turns me away from a book (and/or movie), when there is repeatedly lots of cussing. For me it's a waste of words and really just unnecessary. One or two is "OK" I suppose, but really just adding a bunch can seem sloppy.
2. Boyfriend and girlfriend sleeping together. It's uncomfortable to read and it's wrong. You may hate me for this, but I just don't like this in the books I'm reading.
3. Lots and lots of violence. It's just no fun for me to read.
4. Always having ultra weird villains, who pretty much want to see everyone dead.
So that's four of the main things I have a problem with in books. I love to read and so I do see lots of books with extreme amounts of violence and ultra weird villains. Both are not really "bad", but what I'm saying is - be different. I've actually wished before that there was a book from the villain's point of view. Maybe one where we actually pity him and see "why" he's doing it. Not in anyway excuse his evilness, but simply see that he's human. And maybe have a little redemption in the end?
So what do you think? Do you disagree or agree with the things of my list, or do you have any to add?
