That's how I'm feeling....cliche!
I'm wondering do other writer's feel this way? I worked on manuscript edits and received several comments about the use of 'heart hitched' as cliche in a romance novel. Hmmm....I didn't even realize it. But I promptly changed it!
While I'm writing I do really try to watch over used cliches like the one in my title. I try to come up with fresh comparisons that fit the theme of my novel, but occasionaly, I slip up!
So readers, does reading over used cliches take you out of the story?
Writers, do you find yourself editing out tired cliches in your novel?
I hope you leave a comment but remember, they're moderated so they won't immediately publish.
