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.

Ha Ha. Hey there !
I'm Nicola. XD. I got an email about this place earlier, and I decided to check it out. =)
I'm 16 and living in Ireland. He He.
Love to write-- hence the reason I am here. Lol. Stories.. poems.. songs, nope, I lie, never wrote a song in my life. :P
Anyway.. what else.. oh, total bookworm. My favorites are Harry Potter, Any Jane Austen book, The Inheritance series, and, I used to be a lovestruck obsessed fan girl of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series until one day, I realized how awful it was. Ha Ha.
Oh and, I love the band Paramore, and I'm obsessed with forums--,mostly forumotion ones. Haa. I'm an admin on one forum aaaand mod on another. Very Happy

See y'all around! :P

Very nice, glad you are here. You are a reader as opposed to a writer? We have a lot of work posted so far and much more to come, I'm sure you'll find something you like often.

Do you write at all? If so, what exactly do you write?

Anyways, glad that you've signed up and we hope you enjoy your time here at Scribbles.

No.. I'm a writer. Lol. Poems and stories. XD. Though I probably won't post that much of my stuff, I kind of prefer to read other peoples. =)

And thanks!

Hello Xparamore

you know... at first I used to watch, read and that was about all, I kept all my stories to myself as I thought they were 100% unworthy of anyone's attention, then I started posting and comments were sometimes good and sometimes awful, and now, everytime i write I post whether it's in my space thinggies or in writer's groups, I belong to 3 now. I've learned a lot after my postings and I'd like to think I've improved with age (like good wines). Just post girl! post post post and if we forgtet to comment, just give us a nodge and we will do.

hugs and welcome

You couldn't post why? The forum hasn't been having any problems that we know of, if you are having a problem let us know and we will try and get it fix for you.

Well, whenever I went to type a message, the message wasn't coming out, it was just black, and I thought maybe it was just a problem with the fonts so I pressed send but it said there was no text. I tried to PM someone about it.. but obviously had the same problem. Lol.

And, bahaha, a hammer. LMAO.
