No, please, not that! Anything but the Invincible Female Warrior!
For want of any other writers’ organization to join, I once joined a romance writers’ group. I still have nightmares about it. To this day I don’t know which cliche is the absolute worst: the sexy Invincible Female Warrior or the Dark and Sexy Vampire. If you’re really rolling snake-eyes, you’ll get ’em both in one book.
I mean, what is the point of writing a novel that does nothing but pile up cliches? Homer knew better than to do that, and he was almost 3,000 years ago.
It is said, with some justice, that people get the government that they deserve.
It also looks like they get the popular fiction they deserve.
