After three weeks of intense and frustrating-beyond-belief writer's block, I was able to finish up the next chapter.  Over 3,000 words in about 24 hours.  I'm proud of myself.  Just sent it off to the loverly Kitty for beta.  It does make me wonder though -

A question for my fellow writers: do you ever experience blockage?  And if so, how do y'all deal with it?  I almost always try and exercise by doing little word puzzles and I have a trick I do with the dictionary that usually sparks something, but this time nothing came.  What about you?

Allowing or forcing myself to write garbagey garbage usually gets the gears turning, at least. Sort of a Nanowrimo philosophy.

I just write. Five words, fifty, however many i can force out and then distract myself for five minutes on Lolcats or Youtube. Then i go back and write more until i get to some point of stopping. And do it all over again the next day until suddenly - yay, words that sounds good!!

I end up deleting a lot, but it works.
