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: But So What?   August 20th 2008, 10:56 pm

She used to think that they had it all
Every little piece every little
Thing
Every little note to every little
Song that she wanted to sing
She broke down every time they laughed
Laughed at her and her opinions
Until one day she said
"I don't need that"
She said "I'd never thought I'd never need you"
But lately she'd realized

It's just weakness
Fakeness
Crazy talk
That they live on
It's hatred
But so what?
"I never thought I'd say this;
But I'd rather not be like them at all"

Lately she thought she'd been going crazy
But she said; "This decision has really saved me"
She didn't them

It's just weakness
Fakeness
Crazy talk
That they live on
It's hatred
But so what?
"I never thought I'd say this;
But I'd rather not be like them at all"

It's hatred
But so what?
"I never thought I'd say this;
But I'd rather not be like them at all"
