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.

TV Reflections
The news is deeply depressing, except for a Yemeni
woman activist trying to explain to a dense reporter
that Yemen do not need outside interference.
The reporter wanted to know about Iran, everyone
does, the Saudis and the Israelites.
Iran is a big regional power and has influences in
the regions... big deal.

I turn to the weather forecast, drizzle in Singapore
and that is not so bad. I have never been there
Only seen pictures, a sort of place only businessmen
Would like to visit

Blustery in Oslo, that brings out a giggle, serves it
right, the people live in fear that the foreigners will come
change their hardy culture- beer and street fights-
little do they now that Norway is not on top of the list
where the unsheltered masses like to go.

Singapore and Oslo have much in common they are
places where the natural behaviour is against the law.
its people are trained, not for them to cross the road
when it is on red even if there are no cars around
