Re: The High School Genre Cliche Thread
« on: February 14, 2014, 06:17:22 pm »
I've got a couple of my own High School stories that I've written over the years (need to find what external HD they are sitting on as it's been awhile since I've actually read them) and I will be the first to say that they pretty much follow the same tried and true genre cliches. It wasn't a conscious thing on my part to do that. It's just what I know and what I experience firsthand in my own years in school. They say 'write what you know' and that's how it came out on the pages. Sure, they are cliches for a reason because everyone has the same experiences and no one really tries to do anything different with it (TBC being the exception in the genre). I may write another HS story and be more mindful of trying something different with the knowledge of this discussion.
