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.

I've always had sort of a fascination with toadstools.

Cute.

Wish I could show you some pictures of the things I have seen here in VA. Is it size or style you like?

I'll see what images I can find (or take) for you.

I do like the really small ones, like these, that grow in clusters. But we have some here that pop up over night and are roughly the size of my cat's head. They aren't very pretty. Most of them look like big tan or dark brown balls, but I just love them.

I also love moss, which we have a lot of on the trees around the house.

I'm a strange cookie.
