Essay Topic 2
Coincidence in life is one thing, but coincidence in literature and storytelling is another. The general rule that most writers learn is that it's safe to use coincidence in a story when the result is to get the hero into trouble, or into more trouble than he or she is already in. If the writer succumbs to the temptation to use coincidence to get the hero out of trouble, or to serve the necessities of the plot, the reader's enjoyment diminishes because the natural skeptic in the reader says, "this isn't plausible."
