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: a peaceful day   September 30th 2016, 8:04 am

A peaceful day†
This day was a non-event woke up at nine had a coffee,
a shower and then on the training bike for an hour
The sun was shining as we had breakfast of boiled eggs
nothing could upset me my wife had been dreaming
of a broken mirror, my dream was we had gone to Italy,
Venice I think lots of water in smelly canals.
We were eating at the local restaurant it is clean and we
know the staff tipping them would be an insult.
When the place was empty, I got up grabbed a knife and
†killed my wife several times because I didnít want to go
to Italy and no one had ever asked me what I wanted.
The police were kind and understanding let me drive home
†by myself.† At home, my wife had bandaged feet she had
stepped on shared of glass from the broken window which

shows dreams sometimes come true
