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 black enigma   March 30th 2016, 5:56 am

The Black Enigma
In many big cities both in America and in Europa there is
an under- class of black people or shall we say people of
African background, but that will not be correct as many
black people come from Jamaica, Trinidad where their
forefathers have lived for generations.
The black youths seem unable to lift themselves out of this
mire although many black women have they are a shining
example it is possible to get an education move upward.
Alas, it is not the case of the black male for whom idleness
is a way of life and of petty crime to get money and a car
going to jail a prize they accept paying a ticket to respect
amongst their peers losers- a possibility to become a gang
member and to be loyal to its violent creed.
To solve it white do- good people should stay away and let
black individuals who have been successful the state can
provide leadership
the money to schools and teachers must be provided by
the state if not, there will be revolts every year amongst
the haves and the haves not because we keep patronising
and finding excuses for the black male which is debasing

and racism at its worst
