The streets were deserted. Where was everyone? Where had they all gone?

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: Jibing Exercise   July 26th 2008, 11:58 am

This is more of an exercise to see if you can rhyme. These type exercises get you to thinking about words you'd never use in everyday conversation therefore improving your vocabulary. The object of the exercise is to list as many words that rhyme with the word given.

Example: Trust (The given word). List: Must, Lust, Bust.. etc. Simple and easy, try to get at least 10 words to rhyme with the given word, if you can't then leave another word for the next person.


First word: Rhyme
