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.

Western Movies
At the Chinese supermarket, they were selling cowboy revolvers
with holster very cheap they looked, and I tried one, but it was too light,
I have never held a revolver but thought they must have some weight
in the American city slums, black gangsters shoot not pointing but with
the hand held flat, and they tend not to hit anything but a wall this
his because they have seen this in a Tarantino movie.
In my childhood, we watched Hopalong Cassidy he when opening
 a salon door chewed spearmint gum drugs was far from his mind.
There is an institutional bias against black people I think when police
the program is always showed someone black, and they get arrested for
the banalness of crimes, like having a bit of marijuana in their pockets.
But where poetry congregate the majorities are blacks this is not
because they want to be there but little has been done to get them out
of this mess, the slum and the gangs were they are,  welcomed and can
For a short time drive around in an expensive stolen car and feel like
winners and throw money about, and not saving the loot. And out of
crime private corrections centres make money
