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.

Gaza Slave
 The Gaza man looked stunned he carried two
Jute sacks that were bloodied and reminded of
Someone who had bought meat 
At the illegal slaughter market
But it was worse than that he carried the remains
Of his family after yet an onslaught by the Israeli
Military machine mostly financed by the USA. 
Now the Gaza man had to sort out the remains
And bury the right pieces.
If you asked an Israelite sitting on a hillside
Enjoying the bombing eating something correct food and
Drinking beer he will look angrily at you and say
Israel has the right to defend itself
And if that means the eradication of the Palestine’s as a people
So be it.
Israel to my sorrow has developed into a state that
Has lost its humanity
The Palestinians carry our forefathers’ anti-Semitic views

As a heavy burden
