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.

Yang Sing River Disaster
A sudden squall in the river and the ferry was
high in the water and it capsized so quickly
that there was no time for alarm.
The passengers’ mostly elderly people who had
saved money to do this one in a life -time cruise.
The stalker death, suddenly struck this was not
the way the old had planned to die.
The hope was a bed, near family around and
there would be words of everlasting love
propped up by embroidered pillows.
The Chinese love their old people – or did- now
they are angry want to know the sea- worthiness of
the ship, private or state owned? Someone has to
been found guilty, perhaps her captain?
