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: Brexit and other breaks    July 11th 2016, 5:36 am

Brexit and other Breaks
 
This has been a great day for reporters they
have been feasting on Brexit squeezing the last drop
 of misery like a dish cloth, and the channels have
been repeating themselves and stealing each
others clichés and one wonders is there still a war
in the Middle East.
Tomorrow is the day of the analysts and academics
they will explain for us the reason why Britain left EU
like we didn`t know
 if you ignore the wishes
of the common man if you think everything is about
money and not the dignity and culture, this breakup
will happen in many countries.
Bureaucrats have charts showing voting pattering how
interesting an exercise in futility.
You let down the working man and forgot democracy is
a double-edged sword, and I say: damn you all because

your negligence has left a hole for demagogues to fill.
