When does "cliche" work?


As writers, we try to avoid cliche scenes or characters in order to avoid unfair critique of our work, but there are cliches about writers themselves. Is a writer's work invalid because she wrote it in a coffee shop? No, of course not. I hypothesize that cliches exist because they have some basis in fact. Do you agree?
