can you ever truly escape cliché?
do you ever find yourself struggling to say something original, but it’s something that has been said so many times before that the very act of writing it makes you wince? “oh, i can’t use that, they’ll think i’m uneducated and uninspired,” you might whisper to yourself as you hit the backspace bar erasing what you’d just written because it was the first thing (or maybe even the 5th thing) that had cut to the front of the line of your thought (elbows flailing, if i may use personification for a moment. you can see cliché as a rude, aggressive schmuck, can’t you?)
if you were expecting resolution to this post, you’re going to be disappointed. cliché does that to a person.
