"The only way to cure your writing block is to write some more." That's what my English teacher used to tell me. When I get a writer's block, I usually just write some random stuff, or write a short story based on a vocaloid song. It's pretty useful.

Go outside and have fun with your mates. OR go for a jog.

listen to music, or go out and distract myself completely with something else.
come back the next day.

I ask my friends for inspiration.
I stare at the ceiling and daydream.

Not that I'm particularly fond of writing as more than a way of keeping track of my thoughts but if I have to write and feel blocked I do anything I can to get my mind off of writing: take a shower, go outside, listen to music, ponder an unrelated subject. Just completely forget about writing. It can take a while but when the idea comes spontaneously write it down quickly and build from there.

If the block stems from regarding your work as inferior....I let other, trusted individuals, tell me if it is or isn't good since I'm never completely satisfied with my own writing.

Some say the best way to write is to stare at a blank piece of paper until drops of blood appear on your forehead.

Well the best thing to do is wait it out. Take yourself out of a stress and just relax. Listening to music really helps me. And don't just listen to one type of music, try different genres to get inspiration from. Another thing I do is I think about what not to write. Not sure if this would work with anyone else though lol.

Look at pretty art, masturbate, or take care of my pets. Animals are so inspirational (^J^)

I just type random stuff about a topic that I think sounds decent, and then revise it afterwards. That way writers block never happens.

Improvise ftw.

I have a story all plotted out and about 15 chapters written - and then boom - lack of inspiration hits and the story sits there incomplete. It has been sitting now for almost two years...
It is now just a part of the things I wish I had finished.

I guess I don't deal with writers block all that well...
In school I used to procrastinate writing my paper until the last possible minute, and then it would usually just flow at that point. Someone else mentioned adrenaline or a looming deadline, I guess I work well under pressure.
