Whether you write fan fiction to post online or write original short stories to enter into contests, there are a few things you should avoid adding to your stories.

You don't want them to be predictable, do you?

Even though some people say that "everything has been done before," that doesn't give you permission to reuse story lines that you've seen in movies a million times.

Try to get creative and avoid using these cliche tropes in your fiction writing:2

1. It Was All a Dream

Your fans will feel cheated if they read through an entire story, only to find out that it was all a dream in the end.

Don't take the easy way out.

If your character is getting chased by a monster and you're not sure how to save them from the situation, don't settle for using the dream cliche.

You're creative!

You can think of something clever.
