Writing Tip

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: the passing   January 29th 2016, 5:30 am

The Passing
There is always a bridge a San Luis Ray we have to cross on
the fateful day when it collapses, but we are not alone many
others some quite young will also be on that bridge.
We can blame the constructor of the bridge – Haliburton – or
blame the state for lack of upkeep, heavy truckloads or shoddy
workmanship. And like the friar in the novel by Thornton Wilder
go looking for an answer; there is none, and there should not be
any because it is irrelevant on that day whether you use
a rowing boat or use a bridge on your way to Hades; the solace
 is as in the song “you will never walk alone.” Sung by Liverpool
football supporters
