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.

I've always believed that most superstitions and illogical beliefs are based on some strange happening somewhere in history that science at the time could not explain... or the priests happened to get there first.

With that in mind I give you, the demon cat; a witch's dream.



Isn't he cute?

Yes I do actually think that he is cute. He has those eyes...I don't know, but something about them is just magical. Absolute beautiful and awesome cat!

Yeah, he is a real cutie.

By the way, here, is a link to a news story about 'Yoda' the four-eared cat. I meant to include it in my first post, sorry about that.

I read this story a few days ago, and it's truly amazing. He was like a freak attraction until the couple said it was enough and offered to adopt him. He's is an adorable cat, and should be treated with respect. He looks a little devilish with those ears but all cats have a little evil in them.

Absolutely! I totally agree with you in that point Hydra. We all have a little evil in us, some have more, some have less. But it is there. True!
