His mind went back to his younger days, on Tatooine, podracing along wild courses … It amazed Anakin how this little adjustment, dropping into the water instead of smoothly skimming above it, had changed the perspective of this journey. It was true, he knew, that technology had tamed the galaxy, and while that seemed a good thing in terms of efficiency and comfort, he had to believe that something, too, had been lost: the excitement of living on the edge of disaster. Or the simple tactile feeling of a ride like this, bouncing across the waves, feeling the wind and the cold spray.
Hello! My story idea is nature/magic vs technology, but I know that this can be a little cliche. Especially since my protagonist is on the nature side. Are there any tropes or cliches that I should be aware of and/or avoid? Thank you so much.
