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.

Rainbow nation
It rained and rained fine rainfall yet persistent,
mountains dissolved rocks turned into fine sand
and when the rain stopped a smooth landscape
of hillocks and pains a postcard picture of peace.
Before the deluge people who had sinned were
stoned to death, since this was no longer doable
thieves had to eat a kilo of raw carrots a day till
they turned orange and not invited for dinner or
left unsupervised at the supermarket.

Authorities thinking this was a good idea and made
a colour program to better classify left wingers and
radicals by making them eat cabbage till they turned
green and could not hide their socialist tendency and
forbidden to enter posh restaurants in the City.

The government liked this so much they decided to
classify all the social classes, beetroot for the royals
deep yellow for the middle class and potato –peel
colour for the working class, and pink for artists.
but people fall in love across colour variety and got
children that looked like rainbows and incapable to
classify people the state declared everyone equal and
instead, build bigger prisons.
