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.

You have the crime and the number of characters in which to build a scene. So do it! If I told you to murder 14 people with at least two different weapons and you must have only one main character, could you? Write it out.

So lets start with..

Crime: Drown
Victims: 8 (adults and children)

Your job is to describe either the crime in process (place, reasoning, witnesses (if there are any). Build a scene! Or you can describe the aftermath, give us a news report or tell the story from the detective's point of view.
