Writing Tip

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 unfinished   May 2nd 2016, 4:14 am

The Unfinished
There is a recurring dream or reality about a door
in the forest, I knock on the door I try the handle to open it
but it is looked, yet I sense there are beings of the past
reluctant to open up and reveal the truth
Whose Truth? If you ever hear all will be revealed
There is nothing after death…why should there be?
Death means no life and nothing come after except annoying
dreams that make the hopeless into despair.
the cruelties of dreams are about tomorrow when you know
there will be no this is not so, the planning of planting potatoes
keeps us sane and the plums on the tree but I do like the taste
of new potatoes as I like the aroma of a young girl not yet

ready to be plucked
