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.

Are there any creatures or clothing you think is cute, but everyone just thinks they are ugly?
For me its bulldogs.
I think their wrinkly fat little bodies are so adorable.
I just want to squeeze them so hard.
And the best part: THEY SNORE!
Everyone says they are ugly and question my taste in animals.

All dogs are cute in my mind.

I call Bulldogs "Pan Heads" because they look like someone hit them in the head with a frying pan. Still cute...

Who doesn't like bulldogs? They are a lazy man's dog. He'll chill on the couch with you, or go for a walk if you're up for it.

My dog right now is a giant mix of something, lab maybe?. He just showed up one day and boy, is he hyper. If his nose isn't in your crotch, or if you're not tripping over him, he isn't happy.

I get the impression that bulldogs are more like, "I could sniff you and run around in circles, or I can sit right here and let you come to me. Yeah, come to me silly human...come..."

My momma said that their wrinkly bodies and squashed in faces make them ugly.

I'[ll give, they have that "Special" kinda charm that not everyone likes. That along with with pan-head look about them, they can be a bit of a turn off to people that like slender energetic dogs, but that is why there are a lot of different kinds of Dogs!

I like a lazy dog.
Cause if I want to be a writer I need an animal that will understand.
I need companionship, but we aren't going to go for a walk until I finish this chapter.
And I love bulldogs and I just want to huggle and squeeze them.

Smile
Their special charm works on me.
