I've been told that the best way to deal with writer's block is just to write. That doesn't work for me. I need to have something to write about. So, if I'm not inspired to write for a day, I don't. If I need inspiration to begin a new writing project, I read lists historical facts until one jumps out at me. Then I begin the research and before long, I'm either inspired to continue or inspired to stop that particular project and begin look for a new one.
