Stuck in a Rut: Writer's Block

For a couple days I have felt stuck in a writer's rut. It was like writer's block but I just couldn't move forward until I figured out an essential part of my plot. But no inspiration was coming.

I was looking through the web for some inspiration when I read that the best way to overcome writer's block is to write.


An obvious idea right? But its so true. On your first draft of any novel, write with no one looking. You have to write anything that is in your head and worry about whether its good or not later.

So write your first draft  as fast as you can knowing you'll have another draft to make it sing.

How do you overcome writer's block?
