Occasionally I'll find myself needing to get away from the keyboard so I can think about a scene, but it's almost never because I'm unable to write, it's simply that I need to think something through before committing words to the page.

When this happens, I usually hop in my car and take a drive either along the canals or out in the country. If I really need to think I'll forgo the hairbands and put on either some classical or new age music (Enya for e.g.). If I listen to anything with lyrics I know, I just end up singing those instead of thinking about my book.

With my mind freed, I'm able to think out my scene and when I get home, hit the keyboard running. Sometimes I even pull over and jot down some notes on my iPhone so I don't forget.

My advice for those suffering from writer's block: just start typing. Anything. It can be complete nonsense, but at least the fingers are moving, and the words coming out of them get the brain trying to think of the next appropriate word that might fit, and before you know it, you're writing. Then transition to whatever it was you wanted to actually write about, and I'm betting you'll be much farther ahead than if you just keep staring at the screen, wondering what to write.

Good luck!

“Acton sat beside him, a calming smile on his face and placed his hand on the man’s shoulder, giving it a gentle squeeze. “Now, tell me what you saw. And remember,” he said, looking down at Garcia with a reassuring smile, “you’re safe now.”
J. Robert Kennedy, The Protocol

“Garcia breathed a deep sigh. “Señor Professor, I see the Devil in the cave!” he said in his thick Peruvian accent, the fear still tingeing his voice despite Acton’s assurances of safety.”
J. Robert Kennedy, The Protocol

“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” Koran 9:5   “The”
