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: big white hunter   December 14th 2017, 5:31 am

Big white hunter

To kill elephants is called big game hunting
by men who appear not to have shaved for five days,
I wonder if they paint the beard in the morning
these killers of wild animals see themselves as daring men
who will never be called up to serve their country
to face mines and where the enemy shoots back to kill them.
I see one of them on Twitter holding up a dead leopard
smiling at the camera, his pride is overflowing totally in
denial of their foul acts; my god, how I wish an elephant
will kneel and kneed one of them to death, it would
be a highlight to see the elephant hold up with its trunk
the flattened body of a hunter for the camera to see
his limp body a victim of his bloodlust.
