I try to identify why I am struggling with getting back into writing.
Often, the true reason isn’t so much a lack of inspiration as it is a feeling of intimidation with the whole process of writing. I find the best way to overcome that fear is simply to start writing.
I set myself a writing schedule and discipline myself to stick to it. I sit down at the computer and write for thirty minutes. Even if nothing wants to come, even if whatever I write is junk, I just write and keep writing until I work my way through the block. After a while it gets easier and I start enjoy writing.

jokes on me

This is the only work of Muriel Spark I have read so far, and I can see she has a wicked, subtle sense of humour and her characters are life like eccentrics. The writing is polished and mature with a wit she clearly underplays.
