Hey everyone, This is my first post so please be kind. Anyway, I have a story idea I have been toying with for the past few years. The plot is essentially one of revenge, though it is tied into other ideas such as revolution and reform. The main character is also largely driven by revenge throughout most of the story. Last year I wrote a chapter from this story and took it in to my university writing class for my peers to read. While everyone seemed to like it, a number of them commented that revenge plots are over-done, passé, boring and so on. Do you think this is the case? Or can revenge plots work under certain circumstances? Are there certain elements that could make a revenge plot more interesting. Also, I was wondering what other ways a person might respond to betrayal. There is obviously revenge, and also forgiveness. How else might people respond to betrayal? Thanks.
