Xanatos Gambit & xX Centric Plots — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

XHardest letter to date. I’m betting it will be the hardest of the last 3. How do I measure how hard this was? I have about 6 different resources to find terms to transform into literary terms for my blog. With X, I found only 1 in all of those resources. The second one, I made up. You can do a Google search for both terms, figure out which one is made up, or just read below. Do note, that even though one is made up, I feel that it is still important to know.

So get ready for Xanatos Gambit and xX Centric Plots. And for this one, working as hard as I have on this letter, I really want to hear your responses.

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

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.
