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: The World and You Move on By   August 20th 2008, 9:18 pm

I'll sit for awhile

Sit and think about all of the things I've said and done

I'll talk awhile

Talk to you about how addicted I've become

I'll stand around

Stand and wait for you to take me home

I'll spin around

Spin and watch the world and you move on by

I'll watch you smile

Watch if only you'd turn that frown upside down



Of all the things that I'm going to miss

It's going to be all your confidence

All the times you came up to me

All the times you thought that I was someone decent



I'll wait for you for awhile

Wait for you to make up your mind about me

I'll dream for awhile

Dream about you loving me

I'll imagine for awhile

Imagine the life that we should have together

I'll cry for awhile

Cry about all of the things that should have been

I'll run for awhile

Run away from everything I'm scared to look in the eye



Of all of the things that I'm going to miss

It's going to be your confidence

All the times you came up to me

All the times you thought that I was someone decent



I'll play awhile

Play the game that you want to play

I'll follow you for awhile

Follow you on that road where you want to go

I'll love you for awhile

Love you just for another minute more



I'll spin around

Spin around and watch you and the world go by

And I'll think that you'll be sorely missed
