    The volume of the impact? The depressed supernatural bad boy This is a character that is bad to the bone, is supernatural, and has an intensely dark background. Yet phrases as common as this have lost much of their dramatic effect. That's how time works.

    Why to avoid it: Unrealistic endings tend to annoy readers. Also, it just sounds a little gross. I mean, need I say more! Aside from being indicative of lazy speaking and lazy writing, they are rarely used correctly, and even when they are, they rarely make sense. Instead, be smart as a whip. Because readers have largely lost this unique context, the phrase has also lost the specificity which may have once made it a potent metaphor.

    No other writer has had exactly the same personal experiences as you, conducted the same research, or formulated the same arguments. Too often, the romance becomes so focused on that the plot suffers. What do you think? Something needs to happen. Ask yourself questions as you write. It is true that a human protagonist is going to find it hard to accept that another parallel and alternative world also exists.
