I saw one of those romantic movies the other day. You know the ones, in which the main character or the person the main character is in love with is getting married to someone. But then, as the movie progresses, they find that they don't want to be with the person they're marrying, so they break things off to be with their new lover. This plot is overdone, and it bothers me (not to mention, no movie ever shows the aftermath in which the new couple really has nothing in common and breaks up after a month or so. at least, that's what I assume would happen). So this gave me an idea for a new novel. It would start with an engaged couple, and the girl says, "Sorry, I've met someone else. Don't want to marry you." So she goes off with this other guy, who really wasn't all she thought he would be. After a year or so of this not-so-exciting relationship, she runs into her ex fiance. Turns out, he really is everything she's ever wanted in a guy. So she cheats on the new guy with him, and they end up getting back together and getting married. That's really the gist of it. It probably sounds pretty bad. It will be humorous, though. It will go into all the little embarassing details of relationships that you never see in the romance novels or the romantic comedies. I have also considered having her date several men instead of just the one, so she can really say, "Hey, the dating world just isn't for me." I haven't even begun writing it yet. I just figured I'd ask some true writers if this is something I should run with, or if I should just scrap it preemptively.
