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.

This is Nooj, Barralai and Gippal from ffx-2 (drawn with just a pencil, a rubber, and some cotton buds ^^)


This is my take of the grim reaper as a part of his horse, calling forth some energy from the clouds Smile (done in adobe photoshop)


And this one was painted as a request from my gf - although it wasn't what she actually asked for lol Very Happy


All feedback welcome Smile

I won't say my opinion of the first one (gay). The figures are not that well structured.

The second is slightly odd. I however do not see anything in it. It is just -- odd.

I like the third one. It has a lot of interesting visuals that do seem to work together. I do not know your thoughts about it, but the third one does seem like it would be a good conversation piece. It might not be what your gf wanted, but she should be slightly proud of it.
