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.

Like the titles says it already, we're going to write some paragraphs here. We could have make it like a game, where one person picks the theme and the next person writes a paragraph to it - but we didn't. The object is to capture all your complete thoughts about this particular subject in one paragraph!

We wanted to give every single person the same opportunity to write about it, because you never know how differently they are thinking. So if the theme would be water, maybe one person writes about ice, the other about the ocean and the next about water to drink. "The Paragraph Bundle" makes it exciting for everyone, and the theme will change every single month.

It is not about being better than the person above you, nor is it about winning, but simply about the excitement to see different entries.

Minimum: 5 Sentences

Maximum: 20 Sentences
