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: a bridge in China   March 7th 2016, 7:24 am

A bridge too far
This long foot- bridge made of glass over a deep canyon in
China, one can walk and look down at the same time but
be careful not to fall which is easy when not looking down.
When peering into the storm- grid at the shop that sells
 canned tomato sauce I often see rats using it as a walkway
the rodent looks up but feel safe less if I lose my car- keys
into it rats are notoriously bad drivers.
When the bridge falls down, all bridges do if not dismantled,
big shards of glass will hit the ground hard fly up in the air again
 pulverized and fall down as hailstones that will pierce all living
 thing  except rats in storm drains.
Muammar Gadhafi sought refuge in a storm drain when
French helicopters shot up his jeep. A rat too big to fit in a drain
was lynched by the mob that at the time was our allies.
