  • Songwriter Tip:

    Cliches have been worn smooth by overuse. They no longer mean what they used to. Strong as a bull, eats like a horse, their ship came in, no longer evoke vivid images of bulls, horses and ships. Overuse has made them generic. They suffer from the same malady that infects all generic language: they don’t show, they can only tell. Your job as a writer isn’t to point to a generic territory where images could be, but to go there, get one, and show it to your listeners.
