TG Fiction – Nothing is True and Everything is Permitted

Clichés

They are the bane of every writer’s existence. Reviewers call them on the overly used plotlines and oftentimes they are truly awful. I’ve tried to stay away from them as much as possible, but sometimes they are unavoidable.

The only way to nullify clichés is to make them your own.  It’s what I did with the Mary Sue element in a recent story and I think what I’m planning to do in my next one as well.

I’m taking on the Mall. You thought you’d be sick of hearing about a place where almost every TG writer describes in nauseating detail? Well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

What are your most hated clichés? Maybe there’s a story there to make you say, “Man, I can’t believe she wrote that.” Whether it would be said in a good or a bad way would be for you to decide.
