Fight through the pain! Even if I can only get a page written and it is all garbage, I fight through it. Usually something comes out of my struggle to write so that the next writing session I can work on fixing the problems that were holding me back. Maybe I do end up cutting the garbage I wrote, but I don't know if it is true garbage until I write it.
If I do nothing while having writer's block, then the next time I sit down to write I'm still at the exact same point. There is no guarantee that I won't still be blocked if I'm still at that point.
