Bon soir! I am finally starting my first novel, well more like novella, maybe even a novelette! I am determined to write my first sci-fi story too, while this is a very open ended question, I was just curious to what some of you sci-fi fans really love seeing in such stories and more importantly what you hate seeing. Does anything make you stop mid sentence just to roll your eyes? And are there any clichés you absolutely detest? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
