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.

Athens
This time I was in Athens and met a woman in a park,
she promised me sex a moment of greatness I would
come back to her begging her for more.
I was in my late thirties, knew that sex with a prostitute
was like masturbating, a fantasy only more expensive
I declined, we got talking, and she was like me a communist
she had a university degree in philosophy having no money
she sometimes sold her body, but she could not go uptown
in the case she was recognizable, it was a great night we sat in
a bar drinking ouzo and spoke to early morning and it was
time for me to go back onboard my ship and cook breakfast
For the crew. I donít know what happened to her but with
her education she eventually got a good employment and
joined the middle classes and a well to do husband who never
knew of her past yet enslaved by her sexual foresight.
