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: Iberia rejected   April 6th 2016, 5:43 am

The Piece Iberia Rejected
 
I like to go to Spain one day soon
Portugal is so tiring and deceitful
It is a fantasy land
Where truth and lies blend
Into a bewildering version of
Arabic influence
That Christianity decapitated.
Spain is a big country with a great mind
Portugal is so much smaller
And their worldviews are that of
What you see in an olive copse
Besides I have family in Spain who reads
And like my opinions
I`m respected elder member of the clan
They want me to come home
And lead them now.
Portuguese politeness is based on avoiding
The truth at all cost
No matter how long you leave in Portugal
They will treat you with
A smiling contempt.
So it is time to leave this land
of sheep herders and lawyers
indelible belief in Dictatorship.
