Jungian Psychology – A to Z Challenge, Literary Terms

JOne complaint I get during my A to Z Challenge is the length of my articles.

I do apologize for that, but since last year, a number of my AtoZ article have been viewed throughout the year, so while I do this for AtoZ, I also do it for others visiting my site in the future.

Today we have Jungian Psychology.

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.

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.
