But without some dramatic hook who is going to want to read it? Even reality television has to be scripted for audiences to be interested. How do you avoid the suprised pregnancy, the bringing together death and/or losing your virginity cliche story lines?
I wish Jane Austen was alive. "Miss Austen, how did you draw your audience in and keep them entertained? Your stories were about everyday romance. What was the drama if one suitor wasn't a blood sucking fiend?"
If I was to write something based upon my life, what a very boring story it would be. Hell even I fall asleep in the middle of the chapter.
