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.

Besides the one I entered in this month's challenger I got some other really great autumn shots this morning.

I really like the first picture. I think that the leaves stuck in a spider web right? But those two, faded away, white lines on the side of the leaves could also be the moving of the leaves in the wind. Just let your imagination flow. Looks really great though. Nice shot!

Yes, indeed. That is a spider's web with leaves stuck in it at the top. I thought it gave the picture an interesting effect as well, thanks.
