Staring at a blank page and not having the words flow the way they did last week, or even yesterday, is every writer's nightmare.

Others would argue it just takes shaking things up.
To help out, I tracked down willing writers of various genres who have faced the plague of writer's block, and who were willing to share their cures or tips for preventative maintenance.
