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 horse at dawn    October 9th 2017, 4:04 am

The equine and May

On the flatland was a field deep green had cute blue flowers
that tended to disappear at the end of spring.
The pasture was framed by purple poppies and no sheep
these infernal eating machines that graze a meadow
into a wasteland.
Stood in the middle of this succulence, the aroma was
overwhelming, I swooned. Sank down on my knees
buried my face in moist wondrousness and wished
I was a stallion.
