I haven't had that in a while as there's a backlog of projects I can be working on. But. Writer's block (2) as in: "I know exactly what I need to write but am doing everything I can to avoid doing it?" That I have a lot. One way of getting through that is my 20-minutes-a-day rule, explained in another answer here somewhere. Writer's block (1) is not so easy to get over. Read a lot, jot things down all the time, be an active reader (writing stuff in the margins). You never know where inspiration comes from.(less)

“I read books. I know who I am.”

“You get where you are by yourself. There's no regret in that. That's just the way it is.”
Daniel Orozco, Orientation: And Other Stories

“It's not just love, or desire, but something profoundly less complex, as unadorned and simple as the vehicle code. Officer laughs, cries. Tearful and giddy, she whales on her demonstrator with what she realizes is joy in her heart.”
Daniel Orozco, Orientation: And Other Stories
