QUEST - A to Z CHALLENGED

Q is for QUEST

Each post for the A to Z Challenge is the challenge I set for myself.
A destrier was the best-known
warhorse in the middle ages


















Q is for the Quest because where heroes come in different genders, shapes, and sizes, but the quest remains constant whether the journey takes place in a world we recognise or one we discover along with the MC.

HAL LONGLEAT AND THE TROUBLE WITH TRUTH

Hal’s hand tightened in the mane of the small horse. The grey pony stamped at the straw scattered over the cobble-stoned yard. His heart thumped. When he grabbed them up, his hands slipped on the supple leather reins. He had seen the knight, de Moreville, and his party arrive but he’d paid more attention to black destrier.

Could YOU have been gifted with the ability to identify and eliminate weak and brittle phrases from your work? To the uninitiated, these interlopers look like quality imagery.

CLICHÉ RAIDERS: REWRITE!

•           quality of life
•           queen for the day
•           queer the pitch
•           quick and the dead
•           quiet as a mouse
•           quid pro quo
•           quiet before the storm, the
•           quit horsing around
•           quit while you’re ahead

FOR Q, I CHOSE QUEST. WHAT IS THE SUBJECT OF YOUR Q POST?

      I agree, there's something about having to fight yourself and nature that makes a quest so addictive.
