Took the first week of October off just to have fun and relax ... now it's back to focusing on my novel. Working on my outline for the next 200 pages or so.

I came up with a scene that I kind of turn my nose up at. It seems like a very cliche situation ... that is ... a kind of universal theme that probably everyone can relate to and understand. It turns me off for that reason. In short, a character lies to someone she cares about to protect them from a dangerous truth ... It just seems cliche.

That's not to say that this kind of thing doesn't happen ... I just ... don't want to read something so utterly typical so I don't want to write it either. I'm trying to think of another way of doing this ... but I'm unsure of how to make it work. This is a believable situation ... but maybe because it's so believable, that's what makes it feel so cliche ...
