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.

A writing prompt is the general topic of this exercise. You can write a poem, a short story or a few sentences, but you have to vividly portray the person, place or thing in such a way that the reader can visualize the topic and inter into the writers experience.

If you have any ideas for a daily writing prompt, please send it per PM to an administrator or post it in the 'General Discussion' section.
