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.

Well, yeah, reading is great! READ! Oh, but this is a forum, and you did bother to introduce yourself, so LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! Share your thoughts. That is what makes you a treasured member.

No absolutely not evil. Everyone is welcome on our site. I do agree with Terish though. Tell us your opinion and let us know what you think. Let me just tell you that getting an opinion or just some ransom thoughts can help a lot!

Glad to have you aboard!
