Welcome 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.

As I mentioned, there are a lot to rivers. You can simply draw a squiggly line from point A to point B and call it a day, but if you really want to understand the how and why of a river, especially if you are seeking an accurate story, then we need to go into finer detail of rivers.
In reading this, you may ask why do we need to go into so much detail about rivers. Often times in narrative, rivers are treated as water inside a ditch. It’s more complicated that that. In knowing how rivers work, may change elements of your story.
We 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.
Here 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
Now 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.
Today we’ll be looking at In Medias Res and Iceberg Theory. Don’t fret if you haven’t heard these term, I didn’t until I looked these up. They are important terms to know and how they relate to each other is equally important.
As always, please post below, let me know how I am doing and what you are getting out of this.
This is my first time doing this, so I apologize for some of the technical difficulties, and I hope to improve in the future. The format of this is two fold, I will do an informal video interview, and a formal text interview. Adam was kind enough to do both. So enjoy the video and check out his further responses below.
We had a good first week getting some good solid literary terms in. Now comes the hard part with F, G, H, I, J, K. But don’t worry, I have them picked out, and you should be well surprised what they are.
Starting off the week, we have Flashback and Foreshadowing. This should be a delight, glad the week is starting off easy.
As always, please post below what you think and if you think I got something wrong, lay it on me.
