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: sausage factory    June 30th 2015, 4:08 am

Sausage Factory
On my travels on the countryside I saw this disused road
with weed sprouting through cracks in the asphalt
Followed the road and came to a village that was empty
of people, domestic animals, cats and dogs, with one
exception of an old couple sinewy with faces of leather.
There used to be a small factory here making sausages
owned by two brothers who suddenly moved away.
I asked the couple where the people had gone, France to
find work was the answer I got. The old guy giggled, we’re
too tough! What did he mean? In a hidden small valley
another village is slowly being emptied, there is a small
factory making sausages until it is time to move away.
“Salsias” the name of the firm, I recall buying a tin once
nice meat but a bit sweet for my taste.
