Literary Terms – BIRG & CORF

This is a rather unique Literary term article, as it will make use of two terms rather than one. The reason is that both borrow from the same source but then divide from there. Rather than repeating information again, I will simply discuss both in this article.

Today we are tacking Basking in Reflected Glory (BIRG) and Cutting Off Reflected Failure (CORF).

When I originally did this article, I had given a great deal of research to this. Since that time, I have learned more as a writer and expand this article further.

Literary Terms – Anti-Climax

large_open_bookWelcome to another Literary Term. Many of my terms are things you haven’t heard of before, but once in awhile, they are terms that you have heard, or at least should have heard.

Anti-climax is a great words that describes a great plot device that, like a magic trick, you have to be careful in its execution. A poor execution can lead to a lot of angry viewers.

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’ll admit they are quite long, and there are many blogs people want to visit and mine takes a bit of time to get through. 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.

Literary Terms – Walkervellianism

large_open_bookAfter the success of my A to Z Blog Challenge, I decided that I want to start introducing literary terms on a full time basis. As with my challenge, I look at terms you expect to find, and terms that you never thought about using as a literary term. But just added fun, I will sometimes make up terms all together to fit my needs. My resources will include Literary Terms, Psychology, TV Tropes, Mathematics, Science, and any other reference source that can take on a whole new philosophy when applied to plot.

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.
