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: Morpheus`s kiss   February 3rd 2016, 10:41 am

Morpheus`s Kiss
I knew something was up, the love of my life
Was there smiling we were together again?
But I was dragged into a deeper sleep one
That has no morning exit; my sister called me
Tried to pull me into this dream I resisted
With all my might I called out to the night but
No one heard me the Morpheus embrace
Would not let me go, in anxiety, I threw myself
On to the floor, this woke me up, I was free of
A powerful pull, the lonely had tried to drag me
Into their endless night, I had won but didn`t dare
To go back to sleep again made a cup of coffee
Waited to hear the cock`s caw and saw Dawn`s light

 Sending a message of a new day.
