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: a cloud`s romance   November 10th 2015, 6:46 am

A cloud`s romance
White butterflies covered the glade like a film star`s living room
still unspoilt by drops of red wine, cake crumbs and vomits.
They suddenly flew up over tree tops became a white cloud drifting
about looking for another green dell that was perfectly happy being
green, yet pleased when the cloud landed and became a white carpet.
Mind, it had wanted to be occupied by many- coloured butterflies
it had happened to the clearing before and the forest`s animal came
to admire the beauty of a carpet that only appeared once every
200 years. The oldest animal in the forest a boar that had survived
when hunters come by rolling itself into a lump pretending to be a rock
peed on by dogs, man`s best friend, what a joke cowardly creatures
serving man and betraying their own, told of a day when the glade was
golden one morning dazzling everyone but in the end it was buttercups
a delicatessen for rabbits and feral cows also called elks.
Elk or caribou as some say are animals wolves like to kill and eat, and
humans hunt and kill for fun. Elks cannot be used domestically as
they have small udders dry meat and tend to be belligerent and will not
sit up and beg like a dog that has lost all its dignity.
Meanwhile, a white cloud is wandering on blue just being endearing.
