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.

Charleston Dance

In white America there is a fear of black people the slaves
that dared answer back it has its heart in the idea of
white supremacies. Sometimes I think to be black in USA
is like being Jewish in Nazi Germany, killings and arbitrary
arresting of people who look different.

A TV program: heavily armed police descend down a black
district, they look like an invading force it is easy stop people
and since most of them have marijuana in their pockets and
cars, the handcuffs come out and guns are drawn for what is
technically a misdemeanour.

And then the big insult, the police parking a posh car in a poor
district with keys in the ignition and open doors and since
the poor of America are mostly poor some uneducated idiots
are likely to try stealing the car. Of course they are caught and
more blacks fill what are mostly privatized jails. Something smells
bad and you need not be a Hamlet. This great country we know it
is an illusion in fact USA is a country where the gun rules, but such
is its propaganda by press and TV lords it gets its poor people to
fight its wars.
