- The hero as an orphaned farmboy: too many stories have this. I have the main character as a farmboy, but he’s not an orphan. But he is mistreated by his family and scores of other people living in his village.
- The hero as secret royalty: not happening in this story. Besides, why would a prince want to live as a farmboy?
- The headstrong princess: well, for the most part, this trope rings true, but instead of her going along the lines of being a so-called “warrior princess“, she learns a difficult lesson from her experiences.
- The orphan as the hero: in my stories, the orphan is not going to be the main hero. He can assist the main hero, but he’s never going to be the hero. Sucks, but that’s the way things are.
I’ll have more as soon as the first chapter of the story is completed.
