Writing Tip
Our monthly writing tips are written by our very own TerishD. You can read more in Terish's Blog located in "The Abstractions" area of the forum.

Look Back

When not able to write ahead, it helps to look back. In my case I had written a paragraph ahead of the story. What I needed to do was add a section of exposition (talking) presenting some facts. In going back, I realized that I could insert a section where a 'tour' of the surroundings could be done. This allowed for character interaction, story development, and other things that enabled me to present the facts in an entertaining manner.

One should not face a writer's block with the mentality of bursting through it. I have found in my own experience that a writer's block is usually due to my mind indicating that it has a problem in 'channeling' the story. One reason might be a re-imagining of certain story points. Another reason however is that there is a problem in where you are at in the story, so you need to look back and find out the problem with the 'journey' that prevents the tale from advancing.

PostSubject: Hello Everyone   July 21st 2008, 11:25 pm

So, yeah, got an email today, somone from here inviting me to join, so I did.

My real name is Ashleigh, I'm 18, soon to be 19 in the next week or so.

I'm going to be a freshman at Michigan State University this fall, working towards a major in Prevet, then hopefully attending grad school for Veterinary Medicine, I hope to be able to open my own clinic specializing in small and large animals here in michigan.

Writing is just a hobby of mine and I don't really ever see anything I write getting published or my making money off of it, my muses are too unpredictable for that.

Anything that I post online is here strictly for reader's enjoyment, I just ask that if you have a problem with what I write you tell me and give me some ideas as to how to fix any problems, just telling me my spelling and grammar sucks doesn't really help. You could instead say, In this spot you could check over your spelling and grammar, or telling me thigns are worded awkwardly or that my style in certain spots doesnt fit helps. I need specifics though.

I hope you all check out my story, Laevus Levus, it started out as a Creative Writing assignment last december and seemed to pick up a mind of its own. the first five chapters wrote themselves practically, six and seven were more difficult. Eight (Which I've been working on since last April) is provinjg to be a terrible monster to write... so don't expect anything soon.

So, please, constructive critisism is needed and wanted.

Thanks everyone who reads this, please enjoy anything i post on this site.

Anything that I write can also be found at my Fictionpress account.

Hi Ashleigh, and welcome to Scribbles.

Writing quite often takes on a mind of its own, and thats the best part. It will take you one way and in the end come out to readers on the other side. I hope you enjoy your time here and become a fixture. Keep writing and sharing. Glad you join us!
