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: Hmm...hey there?   August 30th 2008, 4:18 am

Hi everyone, I guess I'm new. I joined several days back, but I have a habit of not being so regular. Embarassed But I guess it'll change if I get a hang of this place. Even though I'm new, I'd just make a tiny suggestion before I go on; the font - I think its Bradley Hand ITC, but Iím not sure - is quite distracting, it kind of put me off at first. Sad

But, on another note which isn't griping...I'm a fifteen-year-old writer, and I study in school. I'm not sure if that's on my profile yet. :P Nonetheless, I hope to know everyone better here, and I hope to be a contributive member to this growing community.

Wow another teenager, I'm quite surprise at the youth who have made their way to the boards. Very nice, glad you are here and hope you enjoy yourself.

Yes the script is Bradley, the reason behind it is we want to be different from all the rest. After a while however we might offer members the options to change the way they see the forums.

What exactly do you write? Poetry, shorts? What genre?

I'm mainly a lyricist and prose writer, I find my poetry awful. :P I despise fantasy, hardcore romance and science fiction, and lean towards horror, crime, thriller, mystery and current affairs (politics, religion, racism, controversial subjects). For the record, I've started writing with interest since last year in April, earlier it was just for kicks and nothing serious. By now I've completed two novels, about twenty short stories and forty songs.

Hello Chrome, and welcome on board.

20 short stories, 40 songs and 2 novels! wow! all that in a year an a bit, wow! keep it up...

as regards to fonts.... I agree with you, I find it confusing and tiring to read. i spend a lot of time in front of the computer and I usually try to make things look a bit brighter and easier to read in order not to tire my eyesight or other people's.

this looks good but my eyes don't agree hahahah

I look forward to reading your stories here, whatever gendre you'd like to show us.

Hey Chrome!

You've got quite the list of accomplishments there. I'm jealous. I've been writing since I was younger than you and I still don't have the portfolio you have.

Keep it up!
