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.

The Racial Issue

I know nothing about being black but when black people
speak about childhood poverty I sense empathy I too know
how it feels like being dismissed

Once I was invited to a birthday party by people who were
serious, I had nothing to give so my mother gave me two
tins of sardine in olive oil and the had very colourful
labels. I still hear the laughter it caused and still stings me
like being attacked by a beehive .

I`m not a nice person if I go into a shop and the staffs talk
into their phone I make my displeasure loudly I dislike
being ignored meekness left me years ago.

So I`m trying to say people can only discriminate against
you if feeling inferior. My wife, born in Kinshasa in Congo
does not understand black Americas struggle with slavery,
but it is up to the black Americans to rise above it.
