Even if it's very easy not to deal with it at all (just walk away and watch a film), I have learnt a quite effective trick: free writing.
It's the same principle of the stream of consciousness. I learnt it while reading 'The Artist's Way', by Julia Cameron.

I take a brand new piece of paper and I start writing. It doesn't matter what I write and it doesn't matter if it makes sense or if it's just a long streak of "I don't want to do this. I don't want to do this."
Sooner or later, something will break through. If I am writing poetry, that's often the end of it.

If it's a novel, there's the problem of the blank page, but once I got through the free writing, I only have to take a deep breath and write down the subject. Then the verb. Then implement.

If it's an idea I'm lacking, then a writer's group is the next best thing.(less)

Writing is about being a thousand different people at the same time, having imaginary friends and talking on your own.
All of this and nobody calls you crazy, because you're a writer.

This is by far the best thing.(less)

Oscar Wilde
“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
