When you think you can't write - when you think you have nothing of value to say - when you've got "the block" - sit down at your keyboard and put a word, any word, on to your screen! Another word will come. Make a subject and a verb, an object, perhaps an adjective as well. You can erase it and try again.  If you like don"t like these words. there are ten thousand more in your head which you haven't tried yet. Be like Thomas Edison trying to finding the right filament for his light bulb.  Do this for ten minutes and if you let go and step right over "the Resistance", your fingers will write a story for you, just get out of your own way.
