I go and do something else for a while - read, see a movie, go for a walk. A long walk is a really good way to clear the cobwebs.

But at the end of the day, the only way to break out of a block is to write, get the words down on the page, even if they suck.

Mason Cross, The Killing Season

“The most important quality in my line of work is adaptability. Control what you can, but don't expect to control everything.
