comment my first comedy plot draft is very bland. how far can I go on calling this out?
"my primary character basically has one of the most classic origin stories..." That might not be a bad thing. This archetype probably rose to prominence because it's good. Especially if you thought it up without consciously copying something else. Will it seem cliched? That's a separate issue. But you can't throw away everything in your book because it's like something that's been done before.

comment Genre conventions: Which end do readers expect?
@what, you seem to believe your question is much clearer and more straightforward than all of the people who have answered/commented on it. There are details in your mind that aren't in your question. With the question you asked though, this is the best answer you will get.

comment Storyboard a Novel?
I've heard of authors drawing up scenes to get into their heads what's happening (though watch out - the reader can't see the drawings, don't end up too light on descriptions).

@Lauren, this is really an answer, not a comment. Just because it's quick doesn't mean it should be a comment.
