Hi, I've been thinking about writing a fantasy novel for a number of years, playing with plot lines in my head and recently started to write things down. However, there seems to be a general consensus that people hate most of the cliches that I have been thinking about. small boy, magical items, quest to kill the bad man king. It seems like most of my favorite fantasy novels follow this path (Eragon, Harry Potter, LotR, Mistborn). Should I deviate from what I have been thinking about for the last number of years and take on board these cliches to avoid? Or take the chance that my take on these common cliches might be popular?
