Writers Block! Need help ASAP :(

Hi! I need some help fast: I have really bad writer's block and I can't get rid of it! I've been unable to write for around 1 year now. I don't want to 'give it a break' as I have been doing that for a while. Don't tell me that 'maybe writing isn't for me' because I love writing and it's a part of who I am. 
I just need advice on how to start writing again.
Thanks so much! <3

Writing prompts are a great way to jump start the process. There's a writing page on tumblr simply called "writing prompts" and it has tons of great ideas. 

If you have some old stories/ideas, you can use those characters in some character development prompts. Or, you can create entirely new characters which can also help to get the creative juices flowing and a new story started. 

Above all, write when you feel like it, and what you feel like. If you try to force something, it may not always work. Just write whatever comes to mind, and the rest will eventually flow! :)

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Write something about writer's block! As cheesy as it sounds, it can be really helpful for writer's block sufferers.
In addition, maybe try and go to an art museum or show to try and spark your imagination once again. (:
Writing is for anyone and everyone; not everyone chooses to take it up. Don't let anyone discourage that... Always know it!! (:
