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.

Under a Stone

The twitter and other news organs are full of women
who never made it big, but come out from under a stone where they hid
tell of sexual exploitations they have suffered, some of it might be true,
but for a chance to shine they make their case grotesquely gruesome,
while it is about a pathetic man who wanted them to masturbate him,
and how they rebuffed him, preferred to hold on to their dignity and lost
the chance to become famous stars.
You didn`t make it to the top simply because you didn`t have the talent
and the tenacity needed, to suffer hunger and rejections, as many
stars have undergone , so you found an excuse for your failure and pathetic
creeps like Harvey W. was perfect; it was his and men like him fault`s
that you took the easy way out, blaming someone else.
