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.

Blank Screen
I have read the Hitler book why didn`t anyone laugh him
off the stage. Right now I’m reading “The king is dead by
Sarah Shankman for the second time when not looking at
a blank screen that yields nothing, white as a hospital sheet
that doesn’t tell how many died and soiled it.
 The old man couldn’t find his peeing bottle and the nurse
on night duty was having sex with the ambulance driver
 she wasn`t pleased and had to forego of her orgasm.
 There are some spots on the screen often called verbs it
can also be fly excreta, I could have said shit, but lately
I have become ever so cultured. I try to scrap off the shit with
my thumbnail, but they are word all I need to do now is to
weave them into a coherent sentence without pilfering from
Sarah, not that she would mind. A man caught shoplifting
 cat food it was so pathetic they let him go, he couldn`t forgive
 himself and killed the moggy.
So never read a book written by evil men like Adolph Hitler he
too blamed the innocent and to think once he was a child.
