There are a number of answers to this depending on what's causing the block.
If something's just wrong and I can't identify what, then getting up and doing something else may work. Walk the dogs. Do a little cleaning or yard work.
If it's a problem of motivation, I may try working on something else. I usually have at least one or two projects waiting in the wings. It's good to have different stories in different phases of the writing process at these times.
Or, if I've set myself a deadline, I may just try to power through, especially in an early draft. Even if that first draft isn't very good. I can always fix it in the later drafts. (less)

Some More Thoughts on the Heroic Journeys

Sometimes, it takes a while for ideas to percolate and then for me to voice them—to myself, first.

Another point Gail Carriger made in her book, THE HEROINE’S JOURNEY, is that readers or audiences of the two journeys are after different things. Those who favor the Hero’s/Warrior’s Journey are looking for excitement. Hairs-Breadth Escapes! Battles! Starships exploding! (Even in space, where there’s

“The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.”
