I use more than one method:
1. I try not to set unrealistic goals for my writing which can stress me out.
2. When the inevitable blank arrives, I lay down the book I'm working on and pick up another that I have in the works.
3. If I can't concentrate on it either, then I'll pick up a novel that I'm reading on and just try to relax my mind with a good book. (I prefer reading printed-on-paper books.)
4. Exercise is a good way to clear your head. Nothing like a brisk walk in the park to refocus yourself.
5. Go looking on the internet. I've found so many great articles floating around. Some of them will be helpful to your particular needs.

Because you dream and put those visions and images into words! As Robin Williams once said, "No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." A writer gets to play a part in changing the world! (less)
