|Break writer's block by writing|
- Leave work undone: Ernest Hemingway stopped at a point where he knew what would happen. That way, when he returned, he'd have something to say.
- Edit your work: A great way to stoke the writing fires is to edit a section of your story, preferably one you're currently working on, although editing something else works, too.
- Make notes on the next scene: One of the hardest tasks is coming to the work cold, having little or no idea what the next scene should look like. To avoid this pitfall, make notes on the scene the day before, and give yourself time at the next sitting to let your imagination run with the ideas before diving in.
