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.

2015
The year of two thousand and fifteen,
has not been a good year for world peace.
and brotherhood of man. I despair of our
lack of empathy with children killed by
well- meaning bombs dropped by nations
who look for peace through violence.
I recall from history books a king named
Croesus everything he touched turned into
gold and he died amidst plenty.

State sponsored violence spawn terror and
and newer versions of ISIS will not go away,
and we cannot understand that there will be
no peace before the whole world is a ruin if
do not come to our senses and stop feeding
terror`s voracious appetite.
