Writers Write is a resource for writers. This list is about the 12 most common themes in books.
What is a theme?
- Theme is the central idea of the story.
- It is better if it is a full statement, with a subject and a verb.
- It sums up what the story shows us about the human condition. It is not a moral. It is simply a statement.
