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: a dream called Israel   June 19th 2015, 4:45 am

A Dream Called Israel (Odd Sonnet)
The Jews of Israel or rather, the settlers suffer from
a common psychosis that makes them quite on edge
they believe everyone is about to kill them, not
an uncommon assumption, but their deep insecurities
is an inheritance from the holocaust in Europe and not
in any Muslim countries. True when Israel was declared
a state Egypt Jews there were expulsed, which I think
was a mistake, it is worth noticing that the Jews of Iran
are well respected there.

One hopes a great politician will appear in Israel, one who
can steer the Jews back from the abyss, find peace among
its neighbours, see themselves as members of the middle
eastern sphere and take it from there.
