Blocked up like a constipated elephant

Anyone have any sure-fire cures for writer's block? I'm writing a paper and can't seem to get very far without thinking, "Duh...what do I write now???" I hate when this happens. :( Going out last night rather than concentrating on my work doesn't seem to have helped. *sigh*

my cure for writers block is to write the most pretentious paragraph I can on the subject and then cnange it so that you draw the pretension out for several paragraphs.

tell an ordinary story but leave out the boring parts...and umm make shit up? i write in an existentialist style so i describe a lot of what is seen and tactile...

It's called the Bohemian Mafia. I put you in concrete boots and if you don't write a fucking novel good enough to make syko cry....i throw you in da drink. Kapish? Now that's inspiration

try to expirence a lot of things right away. then don't think about writing. if you are a true writer you will burst with ideas and not be able to restrain yourself from writing down something. but i still think lokichilde's idea is a good one.

baha ha Loki!

you are writing a paper, not creative shit? go back to your outline and add a few more bones to the skeleton. Then put some flesh on them, and another quote. You're done!

I usually write some ideas down, leave it be, and then come back and work on it later.
