I am presently embroiled in discussions with another writer over the need for my WIP (fiction) to be exciting. It isn’t, and it’s his opinion that it should be. Note, I didn't say "interesting." I said "exciting." He means it should include heart-stopping explosions and adrenaline surges and stuff like that, and I say nay. I feel there would be plenty of published authors who write stuff that is ordinary or everyday in its storyline. By ordinary or everyday I mean interesting stories about people’s day to day lives. I’d like to quote a few to him, to shut him up. Unfortunately, I can’t think of any well-known authors’ names and/or book titles fitting that description. Can you help? Thanks.
