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: crystal like   April 7th 2017, 6:11 am


It is sad to be a limpid snowflake
look up and millions are falling down
and they are all around just like you.
On the ground littered with snow,
Hard trampled cold snow
From solitary beautiful and crystalline
to a minutia in a frozen landscape.
If lucky you can land on top of a wooden pool
and hope the weather will hold.
You will blow down from your perch, become one of them
and later reduced to slush
