Most Wattpad stories seem really recycled. This is a list or what me, @TheHonestBitch, and a few other Wattpadders came up with of really overused topics. This is just our opinions I'm sorry if you have one of these stories, keep writing just know that there are 40 more of the same story waiting to overturn you.
First, any stories with VAMPIRES or WEREWOLVES or DEMONS (See forth topic.) they are so old and overused. Can't people write about Mermaids of Fairies or Gifted children? Also I'd think that after Stephanie Meyer's Twilight thing anyone wants another Edward, Bella and Jacob relationship.
That brings me to my next topic MULTIPLE GUYS/GIRLS LIKING ONE GIRL/GUY! What were you thinking when you wrote that Frank and George watched enviously as Bob and Sue sucked face? It's like seriously! Can't the person just stick with one significant other? Also, when the girl/guy likes all the guys/girls that like him/her and can't choose. It's just sad and makes the girl/guy sound like a hoe/player!
The BROTHER-SISTER or TEACHER-STUDENT romantic relationships. It's just kind of gross. Can you imagine dating YOUR teacher or your brother/sister, 'cuz I definitely can't.
DEMONS NAMED DAMIEN. I have seen at least 4 writers that named demon guys Damien. Did you think it's witty or cute when you wrote it? Well I have something to say to you, think again! It's the newest cliche in writing. Way to used.
The ARRANGED MARRIAGE stories, I know everyone has seen them! On the first 3 pages they're are usually at least 10, maybe more. I am exaggerating and I know that, but COME ON! There are still way too many! 'My name is Terry Sanders...' 'Arranged Marriage to Mr Billionaire!' 'I Slept With my BFF While Partying...' Just to name some of the What's Hot list's first pagers. Way too many in my opinion.
The GOOD GUY/GIRL FALLS FOR BAD GUY/GIRL. Again, way to much, spell it out for me, o-v-e-r-use. I can't count how many times I've seen that... and to point out this one double wammy, writer you know who you are, a mix between topics three and six, they're brother and sister and a good guy/girl and bad guy/girl couple, great? Right?
The one I really don't get is when the girl MEETS THE BROTHER SHE DIDN'T KNOW SHE HAD AND HIS 5 HOT FRIENDS! Can anyone explain to me what that means? I don't get it! So you just met your brother who you haven't known your whole life and all you care about is the "dreamy" guys standing next to him? That girl has her head up in the clouds, baby!
PRINCES, MASTERS, and KIDNAPPING we've all seen it, we can't deny it! It's in the best of writing and the worst! I thought we were all over princes in first grade, we all know that it isn't likely that there are multiple werewolf, demon, vampire, and human princes all roaming around the realm Wattpad finding helpless girls and kidnapping them! I hope you enjoyed your bedtime story children in five years you'll be crying 'cuz it was never real!
My last and most hated topic BOOK PORN! We do not need to know the descriptions of their sexual intercourse, oral sex, being penetrated, deflowered, cherry being popped, whatever you want to call it, or that shes screaming his name or that (Most commonly.) he's prodding the inside of her thigh, oh so sexily, with his manliness (Yes they use that word a lot.). It's way to much information, I mean it's find for some books, but leave it to the more experienced, grown up writers that use better words to describe the feelings rather than, he slipped his /thing/ inside of me! It's just gross Wattpadders, gross!
Well I hope this and my many other rants will help you to be as successful on Wattpad as possible. It's really nice to know these things sometimes!
