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.

Midnight Party

On a ride on booze swim in a lake of dreams
It is so easy to drown when a wine is sweet, and the moon is full.
Jumped he had from a river where salmons swam up
while he drifted into the sea that was warm as a summer lake.
On a reef smoked a cigarette and contemplated his future
ah, this wonderful aroma he composed a ditty a song for
the sinful, the bedraggled fag the righteous had banned.
When high tide came, he could swim ashore with the tide,
because a raft floated by it was full of wine and it was not
going to dry land. He awoke, and it was dawn, the barge
stuck on a sandy beach, nothing for its time to get dry.
