    Would my plot be too cliche

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by helltank, Oct 21, 2010.

    Well, I'm a ten year old kid trying to write a story about a guy who's stuck in a zombie apocalypse, and has to survive. In the ending, a mysterious figure, who reveals he's been stalking the guy, offers him a chance for "another life". Too cliche?

    Soon Cogito will post his template that it's how you write it that matters.

    Not sure what you mean by "another life", btw.

    Like Horus said, it's not what you write, it's how you write it. And yes, I'm not sure I understand what you mean either. Do you mean a safe haven or something?

    If I were ten years old, I won't worry so much about such things and just write, making sure that I am doing right the basics of writing like grammar, punctuation, spelling, POV, char development etc.

    Ok Manay, I'll do that :)


    Oh, and by "another life" I basically mean "a chance to start afresh in another world" sort of thing. You know, escape all the zombie stuff and relive your life in a magical world?

    Do I even need to? Yeah, might as well.
    If it works out after you write it, great! If not, it will at least have been good practice.
