I’ve been reading multiple posts talking about how annoying stories that revolve around bad boys, gangsters, and brothers best friends are.
I couldn’t agree more!
However, as I’m writing my story I’m afraid I’m writing those tropes without actually paying attention.
Now keep in mind, my story does take place in a high school.
Here’s a brief description of my story and I want you tell me if it’s too cliche or fits those descriptions.
This story takes place in South Korea,
A teenager; Dante Young, is harassed and beaten on a daily basis due to his weight and outward appearance. He tries to switch schools to avoid bullying. Then something unimaginable happens… days before he starts school he wakes up in a different body; a drop dead gorgeous body. Every time he falls asleep he switches bodies between his ugly and the new good looking body. The fact that he’s not used to being good looking and his overall social awkwardness builds for a hilarious context.
The story is a comedy. I wouldn’t consider it a romance.
That’s it, of course as the story develops it’ll ease into the how he’s able to switch bodies and the science/truth behind it. So it’s not some high school drama. In fact, it’ll be illustrated throughout the city rather than school. I mean, it’s pretty unique in itself because it’s from a male perspective and not some pretty yet nerdy/misunderstood girl.
I also implemented a bunch of hilarious antagonists and side characters.
The humor and context sets it apart from other stories, I think so anyways.
So what are your thoughts?
Is it too cliche?
