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.

Changing Class
Sitting around a table laden down with pints of beer and
football was discussed, I got up and walked home.
A navy academy accepted me I studied English at home
and had a private tutor for math taught by a girl who
loved me, two years it took it could have been longer but
I wanted to change my life, so much so I changed the way
I spoke, which on reflection was a mistake as I ended up
speaking stilted and my natural irony and humour was shy
but not for all time. So there I was a purser on a liner, 3 silver
stripes having supper with the rich and I found the specially
boring forever talking about real estate.


I had to be social dance and often fuck one of the widows on
the cruise. Back home I was a misfit I didnít belong anywhere
I used to say I was classless, that is not true.
My loneliness drove me to drink and finally, sleeping rough
rejected by two classes, until I saw the light, and borrowed
money- from my mother to buy a typewriter.
