So Cliche

As I sat down to create this post,  I told myself don’t put off until tomorrow, what you can do today. How fitting since today’s tip addresses cliches. The extraordinary wordsmith that I’d like to believe myself to be :-), to my surprise I used the following cliches over the course of one day:

  • Time will tell.
  • What goes around comes around.
  • Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
  • Consider the source.

THINK ABOUT IT: IN YOUR DAILY CONVERSATIONS DO YOU RELY ON CLICHES?  DO CLICHES CREEP INTO YOUR WORK IN PROGRESS?  DO CLICHES END UP IN YOUR FINAL MANUSCRIPT? POST A FEW OF YOUR MOST USED CLICHES.

Most of us use cliches. When editing your work consider the source. Is that brilliant prose original or so cliche?
