Will writers ever run out of creativity?
I think I’m using the word “theme” correctly (I mean it as in the topic that you’re writing about).
Obviously you can write 100 different stories about one theme (cowboys, love, war, psychotic killers), but will there ever be so many stories written that they begin to be repetitive? Or will new stories always keep us entertained, even though we’ve read 100 different versions of the guy who falls in love with the girl? Will the fact that we probably know what’s going to happen at the end ruin the fun of finishing a new story? Will we ever be too bored with knowing the good guy is going to win over the bad guy? Do you think future stories will start to have bad guys winning all the time, just to switch things up for our entertainment?
You don’t have to answer all these questions—they’re just questions to spark your thoughts about this topic.
