So who else is sick of hearing of Lindsay Lohan's jail time?
I admit to reading the "jail journal" in a magazine at the grocery store check out line. Turns out she's getting served slop and listening to taunt sof other prisoners and pretty much living it out, no special treatment. I'm proud of that and glad that authorities are finally applying real-people rules to celebrities, though I'm sure Lindsay isn't as grateful.
But seriously, after awhile, enough is enough. Do you get sick of the same headlines? Katie Holmes pregnant, not pregnant, pregnant. Angelina and Brad adopting...divorcing...making out...stalking poor Jennifer Aniston. Let the Jennifer and Brad marriage/divorce rest in peace already! Sheesh.
And all the Twilight actors/actresses. I know Jacob (Taylor L.) is an attractive young man and has impressive abs, but really? Every magazine cover? Of course he looks good, he has trainers paid to make sure he stays that way and a nutritionist to keep it going. I could have abs too if someone would cook for me, tell me what and when to eat, give me a detailed exercise chart to follow, and babysat my toddler while I did the above. ;)
Sometimes we get sick of the same celebrities being in the same headlines over and over. They say bad publicity is still good publicity, but sometimes I wonder. The overly used headlines just make me want to tune out the noise. What do you think? How can we apply that to our writing? As authors, we need to be sure to keep topics and themes fresh. Readers will just as easily get sick of seeing the same thing over and over. How do you keep it real?
If you're reading this post and are not an author, then tell us your point of view. As a reader of fiction, what are you sick of seeing and what would you like to see more of in regards to characters, plots, theme, circumstances in the story, etc.
Chime in here!!
