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.

Over fifty
When you are over fifty divorced and want to meet a woman
there may of them about- they all have a daughter who will
not let your late romance in peace and you will always play
the second fiddle the phone will ring late at night some trivial
drama you have to take an interest the daughter who doesn`t
care about your feeling it is her mother`s love she have to make
sure she is not forgotten by the beast of a man she has met,
and demand unspeakable sex acts my mother has to perform.
Yet they need your money for education and often for doing
nothing and sleeping to twelve and expecting to be fed.
Middle aged man all women of over fifty have a daughter who
who will never accept you as a dad, but only as a provider.
