...there was an authoress who got into a conversation with her boyfriend about the worst cliches ever to appear in books or on screen. The two of us agreed to a challenge: See who could write the worst story. Main Idea: Cliches and overall terribleness. Prompt: Write a paragraph or so containing the most overused and tired cliches in your dialogue and plot while trying to keep everything formatted as if it were the most amazing thing you'd ever written. Rules: 1. Use your best grammar. When I say worst story, it's not about grammar and spelling. 2. Put some effort into it. Give it a general idea, some plot, and characters. They don't have to be good, but don't act like you know they're not. As stated above, the point of this is to try and maintain your dignity while writing something filled with things that irritate you to no end when you come across them in day to day life. "It's not you, it's me" Dying-man-can't-finish-his-dying-message-before-dying cliche. "You slept with my sister/brother!" etc, etc, etc. I think you get the point. If you'd like to, post the finished product here, I'd love to see it! I know I'll be sharing a link to my own and my boyfriend's stories here once we finish... So, ready? Set? Go!!!
