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.

The wish

Soon it will be morning, and I canít have drink only rummies drink in the morning.
But I have a fear inside me that will not go away
and I know all the smart people will say something like;
ďface the truth, Ē but not saying what that truth is. And if you are impolite and ask them
they waffle about their childhood and you can see they are not honest. I have a watch
on my arm, and I never had a wristwatch before, but the woman I live with bought me
one as it would be good for my self- respect like I should go around hating myself. On
the terrace, I can see a new day is about
to break, I do not like the idea of that, but will not worry about it I will
postpone my dreams and sleep till sunlight hits my face and I know
it will be ten in the morning, and I canīt have a drink unless Iím a rummy.
