Cliches and Sterotypes

by Brooke

We always roll our eyes at these. Cliches are phrases or ideas that are WAY overused. In cheesy movies, a person always says "Leave me! Save your self!" Pff... A sterotype is somthing people always think, but aren't true. Like the sterotype "All Slytherins are evil." Watch out for both of these in your stories!
