Hey, I'm new here. Great to be here. I love writing. I plan on publishing a novel in the near future, if I could. A friend and I are each working on our own individual plots and we're always trying to avoid these pesky things called 'cliches'. I know that cliches are both boring and annoying, so I'd like to know which cliche grinds your gears the most. I know mine is when the hero gets the girl, kills the villain and lives happily ever after. Those bother me due to the fact that their unrealistic and... lame? Anyway, what are yours?
