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 have one, but I really don't visit it. I cannot understand Facebook. If I get a message that somebody 'wrote on my wall,' I can never find it. When I do look at my wall, I see that somebody is a 'Romulan Con Artist' and other such crap. I thus avoid Facebook.

I have a facebook, and really enjoy it because it has helped me find many writers and editors and has afforded me much work in that direction. But just recently I have been turn onto LinkedIn -- now there is a place us writers can really find a job that suits us -- if you're into that sort of thing.
