"What can I do to get out of the writers block stage?"
I find that if I have writers block it’s caused by me knowing that something is wrong with the current project but not knowing what. I find some time away from the project helps most, and I usually like to procrastinate such things by working on another project. I often find talk about writing to be inspirational, so I highly recommend listening to “Writing Excuses”. I also find writing to a deadline to be particularly helpful, so I will often go look for an open anthology which has an inspiring theme and write for that by the time it’s due.
