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: loss of a dog   June 17th 2016, 5:57 am

The Loss of a Dog
She was gravely ill and in much pain
The veterinary said: let her go
He gave her an injection I cradled her in my arms 
She closed her eyes and lied still
Suddenly her eyes were wide open
She got up and howled to the heavens
Fell into my arms again and the ending.
She didn`t want to leave
She howled at nature and the unfairness she
Wanted to linger a little longer
Dogs no nothing about religion of gods and nature
She was a stupid bitch, an animal yet she loved me
And I didn`t deserve her trust.
I dug a hole in the clearing buried her there with her blanket
And assorted toys
I hesitated before filling the grave with earth
Just in case she would wake up so we could go for a walk.
An august night full moon and clear stars
I yelled to a silent god, and this is not the way we deserve to have
Our love is taken away from us
The trees in the forest lowered their branches

A satyr gave me a bouquet of blue roses
