I think writer's block might be an old school excuse to stop and have a cocktail. Which is not always a bad thing, but you have to get the words on the page first. Actually, I do find myself stuck sometimes. Sometimes it's my inner critic beating me over the head. Sometimes I've dropped a thread, like dropping a stitch when you're knitting. I have three proven strategies to get unstuck: 1) take a step back and review the characters' goals for the scene I just worked on, 2) give my self permission to write garbage, 3) glue my bottom to the chair and keep writing.
