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.

Newspaper reading
Another hot day the younger generation have been painting
the living room while I have read newspapers on the net.
I read an article about weapon sale which is not in itself harmful
as long as the sellers know what the guns and artillery are for
Quite obvious the weaponry is not for parades but for killing
people and that is its only purpose I have looked at the picture of
dumb dogs and bright cats that have contempt for us all, a sweet
the story of four police officer cooking spaghetti with meatballs for
an old couple they bragged about on Facebook which made their
Goodness somewhat self –serving.
I ended my reading with an obituary of a lord who suddenly had died
 he was very rich but, apart from that, just another loser with money.
