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.

Lives Underground

I dwell under a rock underground
Where my fire spits out of my brain
I am the worshiped and forgotten
And I will find you

*guitar starts with a very dirty metal grunge sound...soon after bass follows*

You think you can get away with losing your essence
You think that I won't touch, won't break won't take you and won't take me
but we have lives underground and we have to live in our wondering hell
Cause we made this, we made it, we created it
We now have to live with consequences

Lives underground
Forgotten realm
Forgiving is all necessary
To live without consequence
^chorus end^

To think that now I'm here
And you were there all along
makes spin in desolate gloom
cause I don't know where I go
or where to go
Or for where to find me

^chorus repeats^
^chorus ends^

*music plays for a while*

Lives underground

A realm of desolation



Where are we now, now, now

*music continues*

^chorus repeats^
^chorus end^

*music plays for a while again until song ends*
