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.

Sustainable Fishing
Theirs`s were small fishing vessels with painted eyes on
the bow, the eyes of cunning
The men went out early to catch the biggest fish with
hooks and line and at what landlubbers called dawn
they were back with the seas harvest
Best price, their predawn caught of fresh fish.
Sometimes the catch was small yet enough to set food
on the table for the children and a few glasses of wine
for the fisherman and provider
Trawlers with big nets came this is business of today
and never mind tomorrow.
†A sustainable tradition had come to an end
†the new master didnít think of the future today
the morrow can take care of itself.
Not many fishermen`s left in the bay they are mostly
old and their catch is enough for dinner of the day

keeping the ghost of hunger at bay
