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 Winning Game
From the town`s park and up to our houses was a steep hill
we ran up Ole-Jan and I and I lost, and hated it blamed
his long legs. When went to feed the birds in the park we ran
too and I lost except once when I ran into a car that
had luckily stopped, he had seen the car I had not, but after
tears and nose bleed I insisted the race was mine.
He always won, when playing Monopoly he had all the hotels
and I ended up with a side street no one had heard of.
In later years I reflected on winning and losing and based
by my experience it was better to be no3, you get a medal
for that too and no one makes a fuzz.
I won a bronze medal for running 60meters showed it to
my mother who pointed out that Ole- Jan had won gold,
Life is like this whatever you do there is one who does it better
