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.

Seraph also
† †
I didnít believe it was possible, mind I had been away for some time,
angles growing old? †In the fair Faro, an old city in Algarve, Portugal she lived and used
to be as blond and pure as the ones one sees in racist fairy tale books where the
beautiful is blond; here where people are olive skinned and look Arabic- which make
them kinder than peoples who live up north-. When she floated through my town in the
afternoon, people lined streets in the hope that her smile would fall on them for luck,
alas, no more.
The grey-haired now wearing slippers is important, bunions give her
great pain, she looks inwards which is a good thing as no one
recognizes her anymore. Smiled at her, said halloo that woke her up,
she smiled back at me, yes, the same angle is still in there just harder
to see; thus I fortified her glow and did my newspaper round.
