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.

We added a new feature to Scribbles, where you can tell us your current mood. Are you sad, happy, alone or in love? This feature is the perfect way to let your Scribblers know how you feel.

Since there is no way to turn it off, you'll be given the "Alone" mood automatically. To change this just go into your profile and scroll down to the moods.

Have fun! wink

Moods? Oh, no. Another stupid piece of information. Not only that, but I have to go into my profile menu. Gad.

BUT WAIT There are all these little graphic thingies with checkboxes. Ooh, this took time and bother to set up, and there are all these little graphic thingies with checkboxes. I like looking at graphic thingies and clicking on checkboxes. Neat.

Honestly, it is a little silly, but I appreciate the effort to set it up. A little silliness is sometimes very good.
