Writers block? Don't really believe in it. I think sometimes we dry up, a number of reasons is that we don't read enough of anything or just go out and participate in life. We all have dry spells.

I once ran into the wall.
It happened after I took a completed manuscript and dumped it into a garbage can outside of Las Vegas. I had a whim that the whole story was crap...which it was definitely not.
For some reason, this action began a block that lasted three years.
In the end, I rewrote the entire book and then published the thing. Haven't had any problems since. But, writers' block is very real. Getting out and about helps. Trying to work on a new project, a smaller project than the one you are currently working on can help.

Here's what Ray Bradbury had to say about writer's block:
"What if you have a blockage and you don’t know what to do about it? Well, it’s obvious you’re doing the wrong thing, aren’t you? . . . You’re being warned, aren’t you? Your subconscious is saying I don’t like you anymore. You’re writing about things I don’t give a damn for. . . If you have writers’ block you can cure it this evening by stopping what you’re doing and writing something else. You picked the wrong subject."
