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: Hi old friends and new!   August 7th 2008, 12:15 am

Hello all! I'm mamawsue and have only been writing about three years. I started out just writing poetry but have ventured into other areas with help from my friend Spy.

Right now I am working on a story that i would love to submit to a magazine. It is for younger teens and am doing alot of revising right now. It's fun to develop the story slowly.

I'm looking forward to getting back in contact with old friends and making new friends!!!!

Wow, thanks for all of the welcomes! I did nanowrimo in November and actually completed a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Now the editing is happening and I am really excited about it!!!

Congradulations on completing the NaNoWriMo. I got to 6000 words (give or take a few hundred) and just stone walled.

Kudos and Glad to see you here!

Welcome!
