Everything is a Cliché

Those avidly following my 'Mystery Tour' serialized novel may remember that the story kicks off with my protagonist contemplating suicide and about to go through with it.

I thought this was a good dramatic way to begin a story, but apparently it's a 'trope'-- according to the website TV Tropes, to which I have become addicted in the last few weeks.

Then again, the website repeatedly reminds the reader that 'tropes are not bad', so I'll try not to beat myself up about it.
