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.

Okay, the rules of this game are simply.

I'll post a poem.

You pick one line from that poem, any line you like, and compose a poem of your own using it. The poem can be any length or genre you find most natural.

The next player picks a line from your poem and so on.

Example:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm going to bed
I have the flu


The next poem could be:

Drip, drop, little nose
How the snot does flow
I have the flu
It is true
So to the doctor I must go


Not my best work, but you get the idea.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's your first poem (it is one of my older ones):

Butterfly

In the slumber
Inside the mist
Of yesterday
I am free
As the cocoon burst
I spread my wings
And fly
Spiraling down
Down into the pit
That is my world
That is my life
As the flames burn me
I am eternally warmed
Not caring what I am missing
Never wanting anything more
I find pleasure in the pit
Pleasure in the pain

Life

I spread my wings
And fly away
To see all the things
And for a place to stay

A place to stay
Is what I'm looking for
Who knows what I find on my way
Just something to explore

Something to explore
Is what we need in life
Sometimes it is sore
And hurts like stabbings of a knife

Stabbings of a knife
It feels when we're alone
But that is how we know life
And what we learn when we are grown

Just something to explore...

The look in his eye that brightens my shadows
The smile that brings a tear to my soul; for he knows
All that has passed and forever gone before
All this and more; just something to explore

A simple touch that delves deep beneath the surface
as that touch become more than a simple caress
Stroking my soul and my heart in lover's concert
All this and more; just something to explore

The future lies before me yet still outside my reach
but continue I must, for this lesson learned I must now teach
Life is but an adventure; best shared with one whom you adore
Simply all of this and more; just something to explore

The Healer

They say that he is a healer of great power
A simple touch that delves deep beneath the surface
A soul that communicates with the angels
A man of god

But what they don't know is he's got a secret
Faith is a form of mind over matter
The healing is all in their heads
It is not in his hands

Let's watch as the religious nuts scatter
Faith is a form of mind over matter
For the preacher is only a chatter
Trying to make his pockets fatter
The thread of humanity will shatter
If we allow him to continue up this latter
And find ourselves on a platter
Can you see anything sadder?

Can you see anything sadder?
Than the my teardrop's steady pitpatter.
Can you hear anything sadder?
Than the piecing sound of my heart as it shatters.
Can you feel anything sadder?
Knowing that you are responsible for this matter.

Knowing that you are responsible for this matter
How could you pull the trigger?
Now he lays on the floor
And we forced to pick up
His dead and dried body
Like the wither of that flower
Now you have the option
Of justice with the barrel
Or justice with bars

Now he lays on the floor
Blood strewn on the curtains
He crawls and claws for the door
Inside a crimson fountain.

Follow me she beckons
He crawls and claws for the door
He knows he will not reach her
Curse this dream of impossible things
Curse this life of reality and pain
Curse it all and let it die
