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.

(the goblin noticed that the poem itself was too big for the given space it was suppose to be posted in saying "...each line rhymes but it think it looks a mess here...")


Grandma you're so late and many years in passing
But the sea and sand's still there and all those people barsking.
I suppose there's nothing yesteryear about this boisterous sea,
Just you had to go on from here and leave our beach to me.
Yet today this Winter's tide that breaks upon our shore
marks your daughter's slide to where we were before.
To weather to the last I swear while she goes on ahead
A promise to ones past it seems towards one future dead.

Hmm, it seem that you have a point here but it gets lost somewhere in the second to last line which me, as a reader don't quite understand.

Second line: barsking (perhaps you mean basking?)
