I was reading a writers magazine earlier on and it suggested if you are struggling for inspiration to use a classic plot structure, and then fit your story in around this plot. I quite like original plots in books I read as it makes them less predictable. But there is obviously limits to originality in general plots. Also, it does seem like certain common plots appeal to human nature, and seem to grab our interest time and time again. What are anyones thoughts on the use of common plot structure or on being more creative about plot?
