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.

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

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.

HHere we are on H, which gives us something easier in a week of complicated letters. But don’t worry, from here on out, we’ll get tougher letters. Wait…when I said don’t worry, I meant the opposite. Worry, panic if you have to.

As always, please post below, tell me what you think, and if I get something wrong, kindly tell me. I’m a big man*, I can take it.

*big man in a figurative way

Ab ovo & Anticlimax — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

ASo I kick off the blog challenge with two literary terms. I will be giving an explanation of them, perhaps some examples, then making a connection between the two terms.

Please leave a comment below to tell me your thought.

The terms today, is Ab ovo and Anticlimax.
