Writer's Block!

You know those days when all you want to do is just write? But when you get down to it, nothing comes to mind. You haven't a clue of what to write.
     You should be working on your story and you know it. But you don't want to. You might be sick of it, stuck on it, whatever the reason.

     Today, that was me. I knew I should have been working on my story to finish it before my deadline. But I wanted to go outside before it rained. I shouldn't be on the computer writing. I would like to write, but I don't want to do that particular story that has to be written.
     Whenever I hit this writer's block, (such as today) I get out my notebook and pen and I go sit somewhere outside; either on the porch, or in my special place in the woods. I take up where I left off on the story that needs to be worked on and I write.
     It's weird, but when I'm stuck, I turn off the computer and write it in my notebook, and that's how I push through my writer's block.
This has helped me today, but now it's starting to rain. If you're like me in this case, what else helps you to write?
     What do you do when you're stuck?

  1. Last month I got totally stuck on a writing exercise, but Anne and me brainstormed up a bunch of ideas that really helped. If you ever need a brainstorming buddy, email me!

    1. That sounds great! Thank you, I'll probably do that in the foreseeable future. ;)

  2. I get passed my writers block by talking to my bff to get ideas...
