Screw literature, I wanna write some best seller genre fiction. I'm sick of being a penniless bum 10 years after graduating. Help me out /lit/, what are some novel ideas that will draw in the plebs?
rich powerful attractive man falls in love with some mediocrity of a woman and makes her safe, adored, wet and loved
and maybe spanks her ass like daddy used to from time to time
Pseudo rape literature masquerading under some vague notion of a story aimed at the 14-70 year old female market in which the reader can easily self-insert themselves into the story.
I wish I wasn't trolling.
It will sell
Write like you are writing a video game, like Sanderson.
Have complex artificial systems that don't enhance anything thematically, but are 'cool'.
Gay rights and them being oppressed is also the way to go. All the rest of liberal dogmas are welcome too.
Power fantasy, so having an amazing at everything bland katana wielding protagonist with a dark past.
References to pleb shit people like.
Avoid complex prose, but make it forcefully flowery.
Make teenage girls feel like they are far more special than they actually are.
Aphorisms like John Green or Nietzsche.
like star wars 7:
nazi-isis-space-ungry man child as villains
multicultural republican resistance as heroes
remember to push hard the naz part, cause nazies are the only remained villains that can't generate the "sympathetic feel" into the audience
Mystery fiction is the way to go. Here, I'll give you a freebie
>Ex child actress gone wild dies in mysterious circumstances
>Official investigation concludes it was a suicide
>Unconvinced sibling hires PI to investigate
>PI is dealing with some traumatic past event that he must face and overcome at some point
>PI discovers the existence of a Hollywood pedophile ring which abuses young child actors
>PI becomes targeted by Hollywood big wigs
>Must overcome corrupt system to bring culprits to justice
I seriously think people would eat up a pedophiles-in-Hollywood type story. A documentary come out awhile back that implied there was a pedo ring in hollywood. It's on peoples minds, and the concept is intriguingly sinister.
>people on /lit/ look down on bestseller
>people on /lit/ think they can write a best seller but just have too much "integrity"
>people on /lit/ don't realize bestselling authors are smarter than they could possibly imagine
stay deluded friendos
>Maybe you guys shouldn't recommend trends so old they are already dead by the time OP got published.
just how seriously are you expecting us to take our shitpost replies to bait threads?
