How do I get rid of Writer's Block?

I am a poet and a story writer, but sometimes I just get stuck. What's the best way to get around that? Thanks!

Maria D.

It's ok to get "stuck" ... it's not really "stuck" at all ... it's just time for pause. You don't need to write a million words all the time. When you actually "pause" it means you are coming up with le mot juste (just the right word) and then just roll with it. It's like sailing a ship in a tough sea moment and then calmer seas will come when the words will pour out.
