How do I cure my severe Writer's Block? Please help?

So ive been working on stories but in about mid January i got Writer's Block not just for one story for all of them. I cant seem to write anything. Ive tried getting rid of it by writing poems and using writing prompts, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I know how you feel, I'm going through that now. This site helped a little bit.

    Also, for me, I look at names. I don't know what it does, but it encourages me to make more characters, and then I get excited to add them in, so I write. I dunno, it might not do anything for you, but it helps buttloads for me!! ( I like uncommon or older names, hence the two strange sites)

    One last thing I do is look at quotes. I look at quotes on my Kindle, from JK Rowling and Rick Riordan, and Louis Sachar and Suzanne Collins. They all really encourage me. Most of my quotes are on my kindle, but here are a few online.

    Don't forget to listen to music!! That always calms and relaxes me! Good luck, and I hope I helped!

    Ok your problem your too tense try forgetting about it

    Because something people don't understand that writers get there instinct naturally not by forcing than selves to not get writers block

    Try pursuing another hobby and keep this one as a back up slowly you will achieve the ability to turn an abstract idea into a a full detailed novel but remember even the prize winning a thousand page story started from a light bulb above the authors head so remember that even an skewed moment you had with your friends maybe the idea that strikes you just ignore it and the idea will eventually get bored of playing hide and seek

    ;)

    the problem is, your mind is clogged with all the stories you have in your mind. try this. forget all of them. keep all of them aside for a few days. Then, pick up a book that you feel is your fav. read it all over atleast two times. then, finish this one, go on to the next- only after a break of atleast two days for each book. that way, if not totally, you'll be able to make a head way in atleast one of your many books

    Well, try reading many diffrent book, or even try watching anime. It may sound a tad ridiculous, but they often have good plot and story, but you have to go for good ones, like Black Butler, Nioen, and Ouran Host Club.
