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: to define US    March 13th 2016, 7:48 am

To define the US
It 's hard to define America big and complex and many-faceted
we in Europe only hear the noise emitted from Washington and
the tedious politics emitted from their lair, and can be dangerous.
The American workers are angry works has gone abroad, leaving
them in the cold is like his elite do not want educated people cause
they are demanding and ask questions….or did, for now, American
capitalism has the upper hand “ The American Dream” where a bus
the driver can make it big if he works hard we know this is bollocks
 The USA needs is a new revolution where the people take the power
 Make America a bastion of people's democracy. I can`t help loving
this big country of cowboys and frontiers, it  was my childhood,
I wanted to be a sheriff in Texas and that I needed a gun to protect
 my family from a gang of Mexican lettuce pickers.
