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: trees by the lane   June 26th 2016, 12:15 pm

Trees by the lane
By the old road, few cars use stand two trees
the oldest one is leaning on the bough of the young on
Mother and daughter, I take it.
The old tree is blind, and the hearing is almost gone and
leave it to her daughter to tell what is passing.
Not many hunters this year mother and their barking dogs,
just as well the old lady says, I have been shot twice by
hunters mistake my exposed root for a rabbit it didn`t
half hurt and I will not mention what the dogs get up to.
One day two men in a jeep stopped by the trees looked up
to the old mother and said: time to chop down the old hag.
The leaves on the young ones stressed and froze.
What did they say the mother wanted to know?
Nothing to worry about mother they are talking about
some trees further down the road.
The daughter knew soon she would be alone by the lane

talking to no one just standing there as the seasons pass.
