Short Story Stimulus: Stereotypes

My recent viewing of, and subsequent post about, The Breakfast Club, got me thinking about stereotypes. I’m getting kind of sick of the “the stereotype is not really me, man” storyline, aren’t you?

Which brings me to this week’s prompt: write a story that has at least one central character that adheres to the stereotype.

The thing is, stereotypes exist for a reason. There are a lot of cheerleaders who date jocks and care more about tanning and makeup than good grades. There are a lot of kids who are bored and smoke weed and can’t utilize transitions in their writing, because they don’t know what a transition is. There are mean girls. There are choir geeks.

If you can, write a story that features the stereotype as the protagonist.
