Curse you writers block!  
It's official, I've got writers bloody block again!  I was trying to write another of my fan girl stories for dizzo's birthday.   But  after mum's little pep talk last week, my muse has crawled under the bed and she's refusing to come out and play the little bugger!

I feel like I'm letting people down, I've got stories to finish and now I just keep staring at a blank screen!  Anyone got any suggestions on how to kick start my muse?

Take a break, go read some fic/watch some tv/get your mind completely off it...then come back to it after a few hours/days. It happens to us all, hon, don't beat yourself up about it. :-)

I second this. Take a break, try not to stress over not writing because that's the sure fire way to make it worse. Easier said than done, I know. Then come back and just write an opening sentence, doesn't have to be perfect, just an opener, and then see if it sparks anything. Staring at a page with a few words on it is less intimidating than a blank page, and could help.

But yes, definitely take a break from even thinking about it, just for a while.

*hugs you*

How about watch some very old(like Golden Era, before 2000) tv show or movie? I think they may get you feeling better...?(in my case anyway)

You aren't letting anyone down honey, you never could! *hugs* We've all suffered the dreaded road blocks to Muse Town! We understand completely!

Take a break, go chill out and read some fic and maybe a hot bath, let the brain chill for a bit xx
