Writing Tip

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 Great Escape
When the police arrested a pair
of robbers, a mad cow came scampering,
chaos the robbers legged it.
One was quickly caught,
the other ran into a zoo;
where the police shot an elephant
and wounded a giraffe,
(being big when bullets fly is a drawback).
The bad guy was trapped
when he fled into an art gallery.
collided with a landscape painting,
destined for the local jailís reading room
depicting a forest.
The painting parted,
as the red sea;
inside he hastily sprinted to
the nearby woods,
whence he couldnít escape;
and had plenty of time
to ponder what God was
thinking of when he created
the tiny house ant.
