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.

I am the technical editor at TDFS -- so I would like to personally invite you all to submit your horror story. Here is a link directly to the page describing what's happening over here. http://thedarkfiction.com/?p=1318 -- this is a paying market. so submit and see if your story gets in one of the books coming out this year.

Also, for flash fiction writers. submit and also get paid. not only that, but if it is one of the best, you may also get in one of the books. so that means you'll get paid twice.

What do you have to lose? hope to see your story soon.

Please read the guidelines before submitting.

You should send your short story as a .doc or .rtf attachment to: tdfspublication.subs@gmail.com
