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.

Penguins
†Are birds with small wings, they can`t fly you to the moon but,
if you keep a hold on its tail it can carry you to the Antarctica and
back to Australia in one day and seven minutes, it is advisable you
wear a diverís suit one that is not xanthous
Okras are as you know blue and white, and if one is born aurulent it
is quickly killed okras are racists.
A world of okras that that is multi-coloured is an unobtainable dream,
but we can with our feeble human brains see how stupid racism is.
Not by pretending colours do not exist, taking in our physical unlikeness
and the amazing fact that we are so amazingly like inside

when we bleed the colour is rubicund.
