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 noise sent chills down her spine, so she went to investigate. This was the first time she'd babysat for the Montgomery's and the large house has made noise throughout the night. Slowly she walked down the hall to the kids room. David was in the top bunk, arm and leg hanging off the side; and she was very thankful for the bar that held him up there. Travis however wasn't in his bunk, she continue to their parents room. The bed took most of her view as she slowly opened the door. Her breath was taken from her body as the ball rolled past her feet. Travis laid there, body mangled and broken in the spot light of the moon shining through the broken window. She ran to his side and screamed as she slid, scrapping her knee on the broken glass below her. After performing the first step of what she learned in her CPR classes she knew. He was dead.

There is always something playful about balls, the way they roll and bounce and for such a simple thing, an endless amount of enjoyment. Screams of glee, happiness and all kinds of fun erupt when you mix children and balls, well, when you mix anyone and balls, old, young, middle aged, anyone with play in their heart can find a whole world waiting on the outside of a ball. When I think about it, mix anything and a ball, dogs, cats, birds, I even saw a lizard play with a ball. Watching it roll around, and hearing the screams that must be from the joys of a game, the urge to pick it up and go out side and play grips me. Life... is a ball, that is why our planet is round.
