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.

The woman dashes up the trail. Her heart is filled with love for the man following behind her. They stop to kiss at a bend in the path and he pushes her off the side of the mountain.

The bride was out of breath, while climbing up a mountain. After a confrontation with a monkey which stole her jewelery, she started to chase it and suddenly stood in front of a big cave entrance. She looks around for the monkey, but faces a big, red dragon that burns her away with its fire breath.

The night had finally arrived when I would face him with the truth. I'd been seeing another, and although I still loved him I was no longer in love with him. This new guy was like him in many ways except one; he'd never caused tears of blood to invade my pillow case at night.

Next: Serious, Party, Lights
