If that fails, I make notes about the plot and where I'm going with it, or my next series of ideas, and that usually sparks the juices. Sometimes I listen to appropriate music (like sea shanties when I'm writing about sailing.) When I write non-fiction, I've usually got a layout that I follow, so if I'm not having any luck with one idea, I can write another one and weave them together later!(less)

It's like the lottery; you can't win if you don't play.

More than that, keep writing. Start a blog. Set deadlines and word goals and make writing a habit. With practice you get better, just like with any other skill, and eventually if you keep doing it in pieces, you can't help but produce something. The best thing I ever did for myself was join National Novel Writing Month; it helped me develop the discipline I needed to complete my work and meet a deadline. How do you eat the elephant? One bite at a time.(less)
