Wanna Write...Gotta Write...Can't Write

So it's high time I write something new here and yet I'm feeling stuck and lacking ideas. Then it struck me, writers everywhere are struggling with the same feeling at this very moment! And I'm just trying to write a blog post for my clients so they can learn something helpful or find a bit of inspiration.

A quick search on Twitter #writersblock revealed that while writing can be a lonely pastime, writers are in no way alone in the struggle to break through whatever is blocking the creative flow. I found suggestions ranging from interview your characters, to change your work environment or sign up for one of the plethora of remedies for "how to' overcome writer's block" or simply ignore it (!). 

I'd love to hear from you. What do you do when you want to write, but can't?

I'll leave you with some images on the subject:
