The streets were deserted. Where was everyone? Where had they all gone?

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.

also, note to moderator(s) we are husband and wife, and we are coming from a corporate IP, so it might appear that there are two accounts on the same IP, but it is not two accounts owned by the same person. i swear!

That shouldn't be an issue for us unless there is some sort of misconduct, but thanks for letting us know... and welcome.

Honestly, there are all sorts of things a person can do to be a problem or get themselves removed from the board, but listing them isn't productive and frankly would spin this conversation into a negative direction that I'd rather not take it. Assuming what you have said is true, the two of you are married adults and you know how to behave in public without making asses out of yourself. You don't need me to tell you.

Hi katzklaw and welcome aboard.

The IP address thing isn't a problem, unless you're a troublemaker, what I doubt though. Surprised

Again, Welcome!
