Okay, if you’re a writer, clichés are bad. Like… playing with fire bad, bad hair day bad, like a fish out of water bad. Get the picture? Sure they’re descriptive, and we don’t have to reach for them–they just pop into our heads, fully formed because we all know what they mean. But it’s lazy writing.
But, hey, I’m not here to lecture you. This is link licker day. So, just for kicks, have some fun with the Cliché Finder. You type in a word, and it’ll come up with all the bad clichés associated with it.
