Then I will mentally rehash the story prior to where I am stuck and I can usually brainstorm my way out of the rut. In minor cases I will go for a short walk with a digital recorder or just pace around the house talking to myself! It helps as well to just bounce ideas off of someone else, they might not come up with an idea for you but many times just talking to someone can jar a great idea loose.(less)

Research how to write to get an idea of what publishers and readers are really looking for but read a variety of sources to get a true feel for your market. Be willing to be flexible for your story, characters, plot, and other aspects of your book; while it's your world and ideas a company has to sell your books for a profit and there will always be a bit of compromise with your work. When you feel backed into a corner while writing don't be afraid to walk away for a while. Some authors have taken 20 or 30 years to finish a book and some of those authors are very well known.(less)

Brian Parsons liked an answer from Rebecca Coyte:
Rebecca Coyte
I don't get to write everyday. It would be a joy to do so, but I work, have two small kids, and often get writer's block. I deal with it by taking some time off from writing, sometimes a few weeks at a time. I read as much as I can during that time, See Rebecca’s answer.
