One of the best tools for the lack of inspiration is a change of scenery. There is a local coffee shop I sometime go to with my iPad. It get's you away from the normal distractions.

Motivation is a little trickier since other things can feed into it. For those with a "normal day job" it may be a series of stressful days at work. Another thing that could contribute is family members thinking that your writing time is time for you to help with their projects. After all it isn't a "real" job. Change of scenery can help there as well. There can be other distractions, like social networking sites. It can help to get away from your home office in those circumstances as well.

For boredom, i.e. you are bored with what you're writing. Most authors do have several projects going. It may be time to switch to a different project.(less)
