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: our guilt   March 9th 2016, 6:38 am

Our guilt
It was the longest street in the world each side
had shops selling salami and cheese, mind each
product changed the name as to attract customers,
only the street was empty there is only a certain
numbers of salami and cheese needed.
No cars on the road just a few starving dogs I took
off one of my jumpers, it been a cold morning,
and they fought amongst themselves until death.
In some shops, there were cheese parties for mice
I was not invited and continued walking this street
must end somewhere I didn`t know where not that
I cared I could walk the rest of the road tomorrow.
My sister had a hotel I took in there during dinner
she said I had not been generous to my mother this
upset me, so I had several whiskies for the pain she
had caused me, but I ate the food before leaving.
The truth was too upsetting if you do as your mother’
 wants you to will get nowhere. In a flower shop, I saw
a big rat killing a kitten and there was nothing I could
 do than living with the guilt of having been a bad son
