Logical Fallacies

  1. Do any of the characters in your own story use logical fallacies?
    If so, for what reason(s)?

  2. Have you read stories with characters that use logical fallacies?
    If so, what kinds of fallacies were they?

For anyone who may not be entirely familiar with what a logical fallacy is, here’s a link to the Purdue Online Writing Lab as a primer:


I will tell you right now Friend knows characters will probably use them because many of us are not trained in logic and sadly it’s a natural part of our language.

Just wanted to drop this link if anyone interested.
