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.

Please read the "The Paragraph Bundle - How it works" thread before you post!

This month's subject is:

You wake up shackled to a chair and can't remember how you got there. Two voices are talking. You recognize one of them the other...

I woke up shackled to a chair. I didn't know how I got there, the blindfold was coming up and I could see just a little light and shadows. The shadows are what scared me, who were these people and why are they here. Better yet why am I here, what did I do to deserve this. The voices, one of the voices is me, yet I'm not saying anything. The other, who is that? An ex-lover? I think his name was Daniel. I was young when I met him and we parted on decent terms, why am I here? I try to call out, but nothing comes. Daniel talks about his upper-class family and how it didn't matter. It did matter, it mattered to me that his mother thought me trash. I'm not trash, I argue with him. The truth is, it does matter. If it had come to a life and death situation, it would matter. Would they save the struggling artist or the Politician's prodigy son? I know the answer, do you? It matters. My fear subsided and I awoke, unshackled before he told me he loved me, I remember the conversation so many years ago. Yet I walked out anyway.
