Since the first day I have found this site, I've learned many useful things. Almost about every question in my mind, there was an answer.
And yet, now I feel like I am falling down into a dark chasm.
After seeing and reading many things about the clichés, I see that people hate them.
And I realized that my NIP has many clishés...
A boy of seventeen who lives in an obscure town comes of age and than he desperately finds himself in an unwanted situaton...
This is how the story starts. I always wanted to write an epic fantasy series and I have made the story setup and everything was just as I wanted them to be.
Then I saw everywhere that people hates these clichés. Nobody wants to read them. I am so close to finish my first book of the series but now I feel depressed.
I can't just throw away what I was planning and setting up for almost two years. And besides, I'm writing it just as I want it to be. I mean, I thought that what kind of a book I would want to read, what kind of characters I would like, what kind of a story I would like, etc... The story is very good for my taste. But now I feel all alone, I feel that 2 years of working tirelessly was for nothing.
What do you suggest? Should I go deeper and deeper into that chasm and throw my work away, hoping that one day I'll find the courage to write something else? Or should I suppress that feeling of depression and continue to write what I like most and what I would want to read as a reader?
