The streets were deserted. Where was everyone? Where had they all gone?

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: 4 Word Game   July 18th 2008, 4:54 am

You might have seen this forum game on many sites. But this is the perfect place for it being a writers forum.

I will give you 4 words, and your job is to right a poetic verse using those 4 words. Make sure when you are done to leave another 4 words for the next poster. Enjoy!


First: Blind, Lust, Mind, Trust

Continuously I feel this lust
You are on my mind
And the one I trust

We played the game
Pain is what we got
No one was to blame
Our love just was not

Next: Sleeps, face, weeps, grace

Sweet grace in her mind


Next: movie, happy, hot, week

Modern horror movies suck
They are all a hot pile of shit
Every week a worse one is made
It makes me happy to watch characters die

Could be so cunning
But she was beautiful
A love undoubtedly deadly

As I was taking a walk
He stared in my face
Then he began to talk
And I hurried my pace.

It started out as a joke
Of course I had to laugh
But as I read again it made me cry
Then it really made me mad

Games are often played
in silent breaths recalled;
ghostly giggles wander
down memories haunted halls.
People often laugh
at finding such true hate,
'til finally games do fall
and land upon their plate.

*was it only supposed to be four lines? Oh well. Never was good at keeping all the rules. I will do better next time.

I forget for a moment where I am
How did any of this happen
How did I end up here

The weather is already hot
Not summer yet, but spring
In the kitchen water boils in the pot
Kids hit the stove, making the water fling

Once upon a time in a sturdy little house,
An old, old, house of mine,
There sat at the windowsill everyday; a little mouse
And he used to look outside and watch the sun shine

There is a book you can read ,
about people that lead our nation,
and learn to hail to the king and queens,
so you won't fail in life.


Next: Hope, strength, life, music.

In life there is always hope
Strength and belief
This is what makes life great
This is life's music

(Bland and sort of lame but it works.)

Next: Treat, Caress, Feet, Distress

Who can ask for anything more?
No one I say.

Rain, Tears, Fleeting, Rears

Pessimism rears it's head
In fleeting moments.
That bring tears
Washed away by rain.
