3. Carve a sculpture out of it. If you simply can't break it down or melt it away, make something from your writer's block of ice. As I did above, write about how you feel when you experience writer's block, or what you think writer's block looks like. Maybe look for humor in it ("What did one writer's block say to other?" "Nothing- -it couldn't find right words!" Okay, that's a bit lame, but you get idea).
Whenever writer's block tries to come between you and your writing aspirations, don't try to avoid it. Instead, face it head on. Play with it, laugh at it, scoff at it, or befriend it. Make it something that you can take into your hands and deal with.
Turn it into one more tool that you can use to achieve your writing success.
