Writer's Block

I have the tools, but the page is blank. How do I handle writer's block?

First, I do not accept it as a limitation. Maybe I'm blocked on this one project, but that doesn't mean I can't write anything. Poetry comes to me more readily than fiction, so I'm going to write a poem (or two, or twelve) to get the words going.

Second, I narrow my focus. My goal is to finish a book by September, and it is a daunting prospect. That means roughly another 55,000 words to go. But if I break that down--write a scene, write 1000 words a day--that goal is less daunting.

Gotta go now. Gotta write.
