Does anyone else get tired of all the talk about clichés? It seems like no matter what you write someone will say its a cliché. Given a situation with only two answers, like does this character have a certain trait, either answer will be overdone in the eyes of whoever is saying. A good example is in the personality of the protagonist. If your protagonist is a pure good person that is cliché, yet if the author tries to make him unlikeable that is also cliché. Your only option left is to make him likeable, but still a regular person with weaknesses, anybody heard that one before? I'm starting to get a little sick of it because I think many people use that word to give a real sounding answer for why they don't like something. Who really decides if something is cliché anyway? The public does, they decide what is overdone or timeworn and also what is still entertaining to use, so how many people does it take to decide something is cliché? I'm starting to think that all this talk of clichés is cliché because everybody uses it and it's getting old.
