When I have writer's block I usually try to distract myself from what I am writing. Usually, I'll try to watch some TV or I will try to find a good book to read or movie to watch. It never helps when I just sit there and think about too much. Ideas should come naturally and I try not to force it. An idea usually just pops into my head out of the middle of no where at the weirdest times............like when I'm sittting in math class and trying to figure out how expand an equation. So, just think of somethong else to do and sit back and relax. And please remamber not to dwell on it. :)

You're welcome! I Usually flip through channels too. I've been told that teen dramas work best. They help me understand relatiopnships between characters better.
