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: Scribbles Haiku   July 18th 2008, 4:59 am

I've actually started 'Haiku' threads in a few different forums I'm apart of and they've died off quickly because people aren't very creative when it comes to Haiku.

Writing Haiku's is quite easy following the basic 5-7-5 rule. All you have to do is write one line of five syllables, another line using only 7 syllables and end it with another 5 syllable line. It should be clever and witty and fun. So lets get this started.

Lets start a new game,
I'm scribbling a haiku
You know what to do!

Haiku is it called
The rules you have to follow
And it should be fun

What is going on?
None want to give it a try?
It is quite easy.

The day ends in rest
forgiving all that has past
Refuge in shadows
