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.

PostSubject: the brewery   December 12th 2017, 5:16 am

The Brewery
It goes back a long time when I saw this closed down
the brewery, on the wall, faded letters proclaimed
Portugal`s best beer. The was an enormous gate into
the courtyard I could smell the sweating horses
and saw the iron rings on the wall where they were
tied waiting for their cart to be filled with beer crates.
There were many cats around, once they had been fat
living off the beer foam, waiting for a good time
returning. I tried the front door, massive it was but
not locked I half opened it but then felt spooked there
might some spirits resent my intrusion?
Twenty years later and the place was bustling with
life, pro, and amateurs can exhibit their work there,
It is easy to spot the difference, the amateur looks happy
with his work, the pro thinks his work is not so good
as he had planned it
When the cats realized that the beer would not flow,
they went back doing what they best do catching mice.
