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.

February in Iberia
It looks fine out there blue sky and sun
But don`t get fooled a bitter wind from the high North
is full of wroth wanting us to the bear the burden of frost.
Perhaps it is political; the western world is against us
We are successful while you are full of corruption
Corruption! It pauses a little; we mean the outward
type that enriches a third nation.
The gas hide in the bottle will not come up, and it is
Getting colder and we have no firewood, this is knows
And laugh around the house corner.
I look out the sun, and blue sky warms my heart but
My toes are frostbitten I have jumped up and down
Pretending to be a startled bird; it helps, but it is tiring
this cold day in winter Portugal.
