I'm going to say Hazel and Augustus from the The Fault in our Stars. Theirs was a real and raw relationship. Pure and poignant. Unfettered by the clutter that most relationships have to wade through. Hard to get them out of my head.(less)

Maybe it's the increased blood flow to the head, I'm not sure, but my brain becomes "un-muddied" after exercise.

I usually listen to music when I'm working out, so if I'm mulling over a scene that I know is going to be sad, I listen to songs that would evoke that mood. If I'm working on an action scene, I go for a fast, upbeat score.

Between the music and the exercise, I can usually come up with something to push me over that hump.

If those don't work, reading always helps. No matter what I'm reading--fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, thriller--I always seem to come away with ideas when reading someone else. The bonus here is that by reading, I'm also learning. You always hear that to be a good writer, you need to be a good reader. I absolutely believe that's true. I learn something every time I open a book.

If exercising or listening to music or reading a book doesn't work to break through the block, the worst thing I've found is trying to sit at the computer and force it. It just never works and results in a lot of frustration. Better to just step away and come back later. (less)

“On a night like tonight, without goggles, it’s hard to know where the ocean ends and the sky begins. With no horizon reference, flight decks resemble little more than lighted postage stamps, floating in the middle of space. Everything seems to float—the stars, radio antennas, buoys, ships—in one vast, black, spherical void.”
Anne A. Wilson, Hover
