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: fire storm   June 28th 2017, 5:57 am

Fire Storm
A sudden fire in the undergrowth
a flame that spread so quickly
swallowing up small hamlets and forests
in the middle of Portugal.
57 people burnt to cinders many in their cars
trying to run away from monster flames.
The heat so intense the sun a ball of hatred
except for the tourists by the beach who
promise to come back next year.
We can`t argue with nature, and with bowed
heads fight the fire and accept its vile ways.
Not so in London a tower block housed by the poor
cost the life ff 100 people, this was negligence
by the careless using flammable material
those responsible for this crime must stand trial now
and not let their inequities be burrowed in
commission that will be released sometimes in the future
