Via: Daily Prompt – Label
Are writer’s quick to judge? If writers habitually sit around in public places, siphoning characters out of their neighbors, are their inspirations founded on preconceptions programmed into their outlook of society? I mean, sure, they add onto what they see but would it be correct to say that their imagination is still founded on stereotypes that they are prepossessed to notice?

Yes, I think. But not just writers – everyone. Perhaps writers are a little more aware of the world, and so this comes into play a bit more … but it’s incredibly difficult to escape stereotypes. They’ve been programmed into us since the day we were born. I don’t think anyone is immune to stereoytypes – writers included.

But here’s an opportunity to improve! You are right, writers are probably able to pickup on stereotypes more often. However, I think we can be agents to break stereotypes with the characters we create as well. Instead of simply propagating stereotypes further in our works.
