Road Trip Wednesday #53: Favorite Literary Cliches

Welcome to our 53rd Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.








This Week's Topic:
What are your favorite literary cliches?


 

Kate: "I'm sorry, green-haired women of the world!"

Michelle: "What if Harry had woken up in the cupboard under the stairs? The mind boggles."
                                                           
Amanda: "It's like blue jeans . . ."



Road Trip Song of the Week:
Dragonfly" by Shaman's Harvest

Next week’s topic:
Explain a time when you did something crazy (this will make more sense next week!)

  9. Oh, strong silent heroes, definitely! Originality is hard to come by; it's *how* we approach the old tried and true stories that makes all the difference.
