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.

Hi VanillaPudding and welcome to Scribbles.

I'm one of the administrators here, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask them.

Also, you mentioned that you like music, so how about writing? What is it you write? Stories, poems... etc.?

Looking forward to reading any of your things.

Hey Snacker

Yes I love music actually, and I love writing. Most of the time I write creative stories or fantasy stories.

Thank you!

Well, I hope that you have a lot of success. Glad that you are willing to start here.

Adult Christian fiction quite different than all the usual lame stuff in that market.  "Dilemma of Dreams" now in hard back.
