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: Those Aren't Tears   August 29th 2008, 11:00 pm

You've been away for a while now
You got me feeling like a child now
Because every time I see your brother's face
I keep thinking I'm in that scary place
A tunnel through the past opened again
You got me feeling all wrong
That's why I'm singing this song
Don't get the meaning wrong
Wherever those memories go
You always know
It's been awhile since I've really smiled
Please don't ruin it now
Just don't take your time
I think I want you to go

The rain is falling all down my face
Those aren't tears (it's just the rain)
What are we hiding is it pain?
I've been looking for something
What are you here for?
I don't know what to do anymore
Wherever those memories go
You always know
Because you've brought them back again
It's been awhile since I've really smiled
Please don't ruin it now
Just don't take your time
I think I want you to go

The rain is falling all down my face
Those aren't tears (it's just the rain)
What can I say
I've always really felt this way
Got me feeling all wrong
That's why I'm singing this song
Wherever those memories go
You always know
It's been awhile since I've really smiled
Please don't ruin it now
Just don't take your time
I think I want you to go
