This week's question:
What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book?
Oh my gosh.
Without a doubt, it would be the dreaded use of INSTALOVE. (That counts as a device or trick right??) I just hate--really really hate--it when I'm reading a book and it's got a great premise and then BAM! The author smacks you in the face with a whopping case of instalove.
I tend to think of instalove as a literary tool utilized by lazy writers....
I'm sorry, that may sound harsh, but would it kill you to give me good romantic development?! I don't want love at first sight! Often times, I end up liking the hate-at-first-site romantic scenario because then I get to actually fall in love with the character.
Well, there's my two cents.
What about you? What do you hate?? Leave me a link below and let me know if you're a new follower! :)
