Literary Term – Ab ovo

large_open_bookWelcome to the relaunch of my literary terms. For the past few years I’ve been doing the A to Z Challenge and my topic of choice was New Age Literary Terms. While I will not be doing Literary terms for the A2ZChallenge in the future, I will be continuing the terms individually, starting with the posting of old terms.

Post-Climax Confrontation & Prologue — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

PHere I am leading up to one of the toughest letters and I get sideswiped by P. I think I’m going insane honestly. While I’ve had a good response to this challenge, all in all, I partially regret undertaking it. Well, no matter… I will finish what I start.

Today we are dealing Post-Climax Confrontation and the infamous Prologue.

Please give me a shoutout and let me know you are still there, I love hearing from you…and perhaps you can win a chocolate cake.

*Warning: There is not chocolate cake to be won

Nash Equilibrium & Need-Hierarchy Theory — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

NWe are now past the middle point of both the month and the challenge, and what a ride it has been so far. Already I am feeling the fatigue of this challenge, wanting to stop. Up until now, this has expanded my mind to new possibilities and from what I can see, it has expanded yours as well. Now, we are taking this challenge to a new level.

Today we are reviewing Nash Equilibrium and Need-Hierarchy Theory.

As always, I look forward to your posts, they become the highlight of my day. So show me your love, and I will show you mine. Wait, that sounds wrong….Oh well.

Gambler’s Fallacy & Game Theory — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

GHere we are at G and…wait a minute…what the hell is going on. Gambler’s Fallacy and Game Theory are not literary terms! One is a principal of Mathematics and the other is Psychology. That’s cheating…

Not really. I firmly believe that when we write, we write about life, and literary terms should borrow from art, economics, law, science, psychology, philosophy, math and sociology. We can’t limit ourselves to just one set of words, we have to embrace it all.

While I did have terms I could have used that are more directed to literary terms, I chose these terms the same way as I chose the other terms, what I thought was the most important for my visitors to know. However, as I get to harder letters, I will have to rely on terms outside of a literary text book to accomplish my goal, which I feel I should do anyways.

Trust me when I say that this does apply to writing, even if it doesn’t seem like it does.
