The streets were deserted. Where was everyone? Where had they all gone?

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.

My life is not static at the moment, so I cannot make any promises. I however love to write. Since I do have some readers, I felt a need to let them know about what I can say about what should be coming.

I want it said that I have finished, Spirit Girl. So it should run to completion. My thoughts are to then run some more TimeSaga stories. I have two finished, and have another file open right now seeing if I can develop another story. I also have the file open for the next Outside novel. Who knows what other project might jump into my head?

As stated, my life is rather disruptive at the moment. Nothing drastic, but I am needing something to keep my lights on. House is paid for. Car is paid for. I thus do not need a serious job, but even part-time jobs are hard to find at the moment. Since I do enjoy writing, I plan on continuing to post things here. If I go absent, do not think I left, but only that a disruption in my life became a little more serious and that I will return when able.

Fantasy puts more requirements on the writer than any other fiction, because the world must be made as real before anything else can be real.
Adult Christian fiction quite different than all the usual lame stuff in that market.  "Dilemma of Dreams" now in hard back.
