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: the boxer   June 5th 2016, 5:53 am

The Boxer 
 
 

  He had the saddest eyes I have ever seen
  hands trembled like a drunkard`s
  after a fortnight's  bender but a dipsomaniac
  can always have another drink
 Ali could not Parkinson`s disease saw to that
 This poet of the ring a victim of success
 egged on too long, just another fight my love
 Honours and medal they bestowed him
 it came too late his voice was but a whisper
 In the glade butterflies fly as he once did
 but not as fast as Mohammed Ali.
