Too terrified to scream, she dashed to the light switch, flipped it, and saw that what had appeared in the dark to be a severed head was just her jeans that she had pulled off, bunched up, and tossed onto her bed instead of into the laundry hamper.

I guess I just keep staring at the page, try out a sentence or two, delete what I've just written, turn off my computer, think, turn my computer back on, go back to my manuscript, stare at the page some more, write some more, hopefully salvage a sentence or two, turn off the computer, think, go back to my manuscript, etc, etc, until finally, after much time, I've managed to cobble something salvageable together. I guess my answer is that I've found no good solution to knocking out writer's block. It eats up so much time, but anymore I tell myself that the time taken up by writer's block just goes into the pot of time needed to complete a piece.(less)
