What is wrong with publishers? What is this conveyer belt genre that involves crappy Bridget Jones type knock offs?
Gay best friend, tick
Low level media job, tick
Horrible boyfriend, tick

Yes that's irritating.
Millie put her baby pink ted baker bag on the chair next to Simon. Etc.

Always a male gay best friend.

Lesbians don't exist ...

Don't forget the 'vintage' clothes/accessories/house decor to illustrate the characters cute and quirky side

True, lesbians are reserved for serious fiction.
And every poorly paid runner can afford quirky vintage, natch.

True, lesbians are reserved for serious fiction. - And vampire books.

Such sloppy writing, really is treadmill stuff.

Forgot vampires.
Typically Queen.
I'm now at a 'serious' bit with an attempt to write some domestic violence in. Sadly I can see that her new found friends will, within a few pages, rescue her from this.
