1. Oh, yes.

    This makes me think of genres. Write the romance where the girl doesn’t end up with the guy. Write the detective story where the mystery is never solved. Write the realistic novel where a couple of characters do have superhuman powers.

    If that’s where the story should go, let it go there.

    Remember Psycho. Write the movie where the protagonist is murdered halfway through.

    1. Yes. There are definitely examples of breaking the rules and doing the unexpected. For me, it’s often just that I play it safe. I hold back. I don’t want to do that anymore.
