There is a trick i use sometimes when this happens, it has nothing to do with writing a story, more for unclogging the drain in the mind, so many ideas and words swirl that something bound to be stuck. you can try it if you wish, or not and sort it out with time.

open up a word document, this works better with a home system but can work on a lappy if you tilt the screen down.

after i have the word open and the cursor blinking, i turn off the monitor and just type, i type about anything in my head, doesn't have to make sense, doesn't have to be spelt right, doesn't have to do anything but get rid of words.

I type and type until i don't want to no more. I don't even look at it, just close the doc, as i said, its not for a story, its not about a story, the words' meanings are unimportant.

helps me. might you,

the idea is you aren't taking your brain away from your story with another plot, another list of characters, you are just there to flush the mind.

good luck,
