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.

The incomprehensible
The sun was just going behind the westerly ridge
it had been a hot day, and the sun appeared angry
for a cosmic reason, and we don`t even know our
Mind and what influences it. A young man rents
A truck drives down the boulevard on Bastille Day
for a reason, we can only guess at as it has little to
do with Islam a faith he didn`t  strictly follow like
Most Muslims, a simple principle observed because it
is customary the way it is among Christians too.
An overheated brain little of education, reading
books how badly France had behaved in his land
once upon a time, an easy catch for those who
sow discontent for its own good.
You can have gendarmes and soldiers on every
street corner, bombs and helicopters scanning
dark windows with intense beams of light but you
 the cannot read people' mind or their feelings.
We can reduce this absurd killing of the innocent
by including the disfranchised into our life listens
to their grievances and respect views that are not
sprung from our culture.
It is deep in the night now dogs bark something
has desorbed their peace but soon they go back
to sleep till the sun rises in the east and a coup

is in the making.
