I've noticed a few authors on SOL write each chapter as "a day in the life of..." with each chapter starting with the main character(s) getting out of bed and ending with them going to bed. :(
Somehow, recounting how someone gets out of bed, or goes to sleep, doesn't really advance a plot very much. It's the storytelling equivalent of posting every meal you eat on Instagram, because ALL your friends are so into the every nuance of your life!
If it doesn't advance the plot, or reveal something about someone's character, then it belongs on the cutting room floor, regardless of how easy it is to start that way.
It's far too easy to get mugged by pathetic fallacy on a dark and stormy night.
Muggings by Pathetic Fallacy and his crew seems to be trending on story sites.
By the way, I don't think you mean 'fallacy' (factual error) as much as you do 'improper metaphor use' or 'stereotypical shortcuts'. Just guessing.
