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: Alentejo food   January 2nd 2018, 6:45 am

Alentejo food
I`m boiling a pernil (pork knuckles) with
plenty of vegetables and slow cooks it until
the meat falls from the bone I pick it up
cut off the fat and bone and give it to
the neighbour`s dog that has been waiting
outside for that moment to arrive,
I drink the soup and eat the pieces meat and
the vegetables, we are both happy.
And this was an alternative poem.
