Vice & Virtue — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

VDown to the final 5. Am I the only one to notice that the 5th to last letter of the alphabet is also the Roman Numerical for the number 5? I have a soft spot for V, as it is part of my last name. It is though an uncommon letter, like U, but more of a bitch to deal with.

Today is Vice & Virtue. Two important words for character development.

As much as I want this to be over, I’m going to miss the excitement each day seeing the new responses.

Unfettered & Unperson — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

UAs much fun as this has been, I am ready to be done with this. Is there anyway for us to end the alphabet here? Stop it at U? Probably not since my name would then be Chris Uoteu. Plus, we’d lose out on X, and then how would we find porn in a video store?

Today we have Unfettered and Unperson. Weird terms, but then U is an unusual letter.

Always a shout out to my fans and their support, if you get a chance, click on their names or check out their websites to find out all the interesting things about them. They are quite wonderful people.

Thinking Out Loud & 3rd-Person Narrative — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

TWe are now on T, or as I call it, The beginning of The end. This experience has been like running a marathon. We are past the runners high and we see the goal in sight, and yet all we want to do is stop and fall over. But we know that in stopping, we won’t start again, so we must push on through to the end.

Today we have Thinking Out Loud and 3rd-Person Narrative.

The battle is soon over and I know each of you will be there until the very end.

Self-Serving Bias & Stockholm Syndrome — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

SHere we are at S. I’m running out of clever things to say. Maybe I am not as clever of a writer as I thought. We are nearing the end for the challenge, with only 8 letters left.

Today we tackle Self-Serving Bias and Stockholm Syndrome. Words you may have heard often, but like many other words, never thought of implementing them as literary terms.

Hard to think that after this month, I won’t hear from many of you. I certainly hope I do, but I will cherish these last few days as we complete the challenge.

Quacksalver & Quisling — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

QSince I started this contest, this was the one letter I had been dreading. My usual resources turned up nothing and I had to be rather creative in using Q. I’m glad I found something, but I imagine my last 3 letters will be equally challenging.

Today I am doing Quacksalver and Quisling. Such weird terms, but then again, Q produces some weird sounding words.

I look forward to hearing from you on the bottom, as I want to know what you think.

Olfactory Imagery & Out-of-Character Moment— A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

OWhen you think of tough letters, your first thoughts are Q, X, Y, Z…but O? O my God, this was a tough letter to find words for. There are words, but to do what I’m trying to do, nothing good. I finally found something interesting that I think will knock your socks off, but I would prefer if you kept your feet in the air while you read this. And if you’re not wearing socks, can you slip them on first? Thank you.

Today I am doing Olfactory Imagery and Out-of-Character Moment

You know the drill, give you the words, link them together (somehow) and you let me know what you think. Great fun for everyone.

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.

Machiavellianism & Mary Sue — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

MFinally in the middle…of both the month and the alphabet. Today will be a fun one as this was the letter I was most looking forward to since I started this. It has been an uphill battle to get here, but I am proud of my commitment.

Today is Machiavellianism and Mary Sue. Two key terms, and both related to the written word.

Everyone has been great in showing their support, and I always try to respond and look at your work to show support. Thank you.

Learned Helplessness & Least Effort Principle — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

LNow starting the third week and we start off with L, or as I call it, the Longest titLe for this chaLLenge thus far! Like many letters up to this point, L proved to be a challenge and I had to once again scour the internet for good words that still represent concepts that writers should know.

Today we tackle Learned Helplessness and Least Effort Principle.

I thank everyone for the support thus far and I look forward to reaching the end of our path together. Show me you’re still out there with a comment below.

Katharsis & Kleos — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

KNow we come to the end of the second week with K. I would like to believe the difficulty of this letter was the last of my challenge, but I know that this challenge is going to get even worse. My problem is not with finding words (though that is still a challenge) but finding two words that I can connect together.

Today we have Katharsis and Kleos. So obscure that Firefox thinks they are misspellings.

As always, post below and tell me what you think. I love the attention… I mean encouragement… yeah, encouragement.
