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: the big sleep   March 24th 2016, 1:08 pm

The Big Sleep
The beginning of suicide begins with sense of
Life tiredness,  there is a French word for it
 “deja vue” a sense that it have happened before
A nice word to use when impressing someone,
but life weariness is  when there is no
morning glory and watering flowers in
the garden is a duty and not an act of tenderness
Books are left unread we already know the ending
If it is a good writer
Love turns into routine like and old dog  that farts
And we have stopped noticing because the morning
Hurt your old eyes as it always does.
We like to enter into the realm of nothingness
Slate not written on  and the only way
To hasten the boredom is to help it along, but we

Continue to live as it is the only thing we know.
