Writing Tip

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.

Modern day witches

Ah but I too, have slipped beyond this Earth
And formed those things that reason brings
Onward I've typed and joined a tumbling mirth
Of cascading codes -- and made a hundred things
You have not dreamed of -- revealed and stored and strung
Ever on this black screen. Typing here,
I've raced my thoughts along, and flung
My heart at goals where others pier
Of birth, these children of a coded .bat
Who, if they could, would laugh and say:
"Well thanks but ain't it funny that
Man has maths where God has clay"
