In this chapter, Knight talked about overused phrases, and also how to avoid these overused words. Sometimes for me I catch myself using the same words and phrases over and over again. Usually, I catch it when I am proof reading my paper and realize I have the same words over and over again.

Knight also talked about cliches. He said they are not necessarily needed in writing. I agree with him. I believe that they are over used and does not help your writing. To me, cliches are meant for younger writers with a not so serious writing assignment.

He talks about basic cliches that people use and why you should not use them. Everyone knows the meanings to the classic cliches so Knight says to make it your own and make it unique. I agree with him because I think making something unique will make your writing more interesting.
