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.

Why is this here? Well I wanted a forum to share and exchange recipes. Bottom line it's just another forum to keep one subject under control instead of having recipes all over the forum.

You have a favorite dish you enjoy cooking? Tell us about it.
You know something that might help your fellow Scribbles Chef's, share it with us?
This is the place for anything and everything about food!

Please feel free to share with us your culinary skills.

Easy reading is damn hard writing! I love you
