Also, I'm over at Lisa Voisin's Blog today talking about cliches. Lisa has asked a bunch of YA writers the following questions:
Q: What are some clichés in YA fiction?
Q: Are any cliche’s acceptable? If so, how?
Q: How do you avoid clichés in your writing?
Q: What do you look for when you’re editing to get rid of clichés?
So go on over and see what these YA authors have to say!
