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.

I’m so cold, my life draining from within.

I just want to die, a life that would never begin.

Blood trickling and dripping down my skin,

to continue on would just be a sin.







I was just curious what you're thoughts on this little bit was

It is a pretty dark piece of you, but I actually like it. To the point in only a few lines. Great rhymes and it flows very smoothly when you read it.

Very nicely written!

i agree with snacker, this is a very dark piece and its abruptness emphasizes it even more. its got some intense imagery in it and over all its a really nice poem.
