Tropes, Stereotypes, and Clichés
Can we talk?
I want to find a good story about Angels. Not a religious story about the Angels though. I'm reading Covet but I got half way into it and my interest stalled...I dunno... I'm sure I'll get back into it but I think it rang a little too religious'y for me.
I have read/heard that people are tried of the Angel Trope but....geesh, it's nowhere as overplayed as zombies.
Anyway, thoughts on Angels? Is this old and used up as Vampires?
Do I need to wait for it to come around and be popular like Scotsmen are now? (They went through a dark period where no one wanted it and now it's all the rage.)
I loved the film Michael
I don't know about books though. A search on Book Country gave 68 books with an angel tag...
On writing books about angels... try to make the character strong and different. A flawed Angel IMO is far more interesting than a perfect one.
