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.

Blame Russia
A thought flew and past I saw a shadow in the afternoon sun
it was a quick devilish thing I tried to hold on to it.
But I saw a transparent ocean shifting shingles on the beach
of Greenland and lazy seals waiting to be shot.
While I missed the news about flooding In Georgia and
the flood at the zoo freed animals and there was great fear
of wild animals roaming the countryside.

Tigers, lions and hyenas ran for their escaped a moment of
freedom not to be missed to be looked at, what they saw as food.
Perhaps the lion could find the Savannah and the tiger find its
way back to India so the hyena could have a laugh.

It was not to be, men with guns comb the countryside and
if the animals they encounter look foreign a trigger is pulled.
Yet, I could not remember what the thought was other than
the news blames the Russians which reminds of the Nazi regime
which also blamed the Russians too and lost, we the people are
victims of relentless propaganda and the people who want a war
will have their day and burn in a nuclear hell.
