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.

PostSubject: Algarve Mon Amour   October 17th 2015, 4:05 pm

Algarve Mon Amour
When I first came to Algarve after having spent
years alone in my cabin, a seafaring monk who had
left youthful indiscretion behind him and now
read books of serious nature; decided to become
a more sociable man and soon I had many mostly
English friends, a laughing jolly lot.
But something was wrong they had no money and
I found myself paying for a glass of wine here and
a beer there and all those small loans that never
were repaid. The women, old slags from the seventies
went to bed with anyone for a dinner and a bottle
of wine ending in her bed home for a fuck she pretended
was lovely while I was in the bathroom cleaning my
flogged penis with scouring soda.
Away from these life losers, I fled to my hidden dale
where I found contented peace and a woman`s love.
