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: coffee is latte now   December 16th 2017, 5:19 am

Coffee is called Latte now.

The café near the train station in Loule
there was a café that sold coffee and tea
cakes and sandwiches too.
It closed for two-month work was done inside
and I was full of foreboding
The person who had bought the place had gone to
hotel school and had great ideas.
It was as I thought, all modern style, with baristas selling
latte this and latte that, one coffee with decoration on top
would have cost me my lunch money.
All I wanted was a cup of coffee with a drop of milk, but
no, it had to be Latte or nothing, pondering this option
I left with nothing.
