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 don't know if its all this shit they say I shouldn't do. But something came into my life for a period of time, trying to correct the mistakes that I half way, already made... Hope whatever God' is out there forgives me and sends good karma my way, I know I didn't always make the best conscious choice to be made, but I was curious and to my wandering soul my heart was a slave.  I fell in love with the darkness and I always hung out in the shade, we both know I wasn't meant for the games that I would play, but you gave me the light and showed me the way, let me lose my fuckin sanity and erased the frame, my mind spread across the galaxy, I feel like these past few years I've seen it all and I'm not even 23, I should have taken a lot of things more seriously cause it's true when they say life's a dream, I woke up out of a nightmare and went back to sleep.  Not knowing how to fight fair against an enemy I knew I'd die before I'd ever see.  Knowing i'm not the only one trying to configure their souls place and worth within this manufactured tragedy
