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.

A Fairy Tale
This skinny lonely wolf reduced to eating worms
Expulsed from his arguing with the leader wolf how best
To catch caribous
Nose to the ground it found an open chest of fifty
Gold ducats and since they shone so bright he ate them all
And heavy was its belly
When other wolf saw his stomach they thought he was
A successful hunter and he taught them how to kill
Caribous and deer too. 
As a leader dog, he was the first to eat from a kill and
Left behind a coin or as they a ducat and a hunter stalked him
To find in his excrete another coin
Fifty times the hunter dug into wolf shift and came up rich
And trekked home but a blizzard came, his was ill prepared
This heavyweight he dragged about
Put the ducats under a tree and tire he came home
When the weather cleared, he found the tree the coins were gone

And a boney wolf was walking away it had a huge stomach.
