Do you ever get writer's block?
I usually suffer more from "life happenings" and procrastination more than writer's block, but occasionally, writer's block rears its ugly head. This usually happens when I'm three quarters finished with a novel and am trying to get it to connect with the ending I have in mind.
If you find yourself facing an empty page or white space on your computer, here's what I do: step away for a set amount of time (it's handy to use the timer on your phone) and go for a walk . Often you'll think of what you need to write when you're not staring at the computer.
The trick then is to write down the idea or dictate to your phone so you don't forget it. Then get back into the chair and write!
