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: my Jewish friends   March 3rd 2016, 6:23 am

My Jewish friends
This blaming of the Jews is so tiring I have worked
with many Jews, upholsterer of furniture and little shops
selling whatever needed,
the daily struggle and had no time to destroy the world.
They used to come to my café, and I loved it
 to meet someone who reads more than the local rag we often
disagreed long after closing time
but parted as friends I loved these people who read
and had political opinions of all colours.
My wife joined me she didn`t like the Jews
I think it was pathological some Jews had spat when
they walked passed her church; she had not seen it but knew
of People who had witnessed the sin
 Alone I was among bacon butties and a conservative working
the class who believed what they read.
Well, I went away, but one thing is sure

the Jew are not about to take over the world
