TV Tropes

TV Tropes is a terrific wiki filled with the tricks of the trade for writing fiction (and not just for TV). Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members’ minds and expectations.

For example, Just Between You And Me, a trope that’s described as “Villains have an urge to gloat. Rather than simply start the needlessly complicated Death Trap, they will pause to outline their plan to the hero, often including information on how to stop it.” This trope has been used in pretty much every James Bond film, often more than once per movie.

One caveat, pick just about any trope on the website, click around and you may have a hard time getting out again.
