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.

The Moral decline of Norway

What I find when reading the comment pages
in a leading Norwegian newspaper, is the absence
of charity and the arrogance of entitlement,
they will not be sullied by people fleeing famine
and war, they have themselves to blame why
should we get up from our armchairs and offer help?
It was not always thus, Norway was a small country
with a big heart and they believed in equality.
Then oil was found near the coast and everything
changed and not for the better, it is about getting
rich quickly and those who makes it are extolled
and the losers forgotten. The rich have always been
egoistic that is why they are rich- but this immoral
has infected the working class people who suddenly
get the idea that a workers union is not needed. and
I ask myself why do we do what is detrimental for our
well being and long term future
