I'm actually dealing with that now! I think it depends a lot on you personally, but here are a couple of things that I have been doing to try to get myself out of a block (that have worked before):

- Listening to Music
A lot of times I get stuck on a song because I don't know how to transition, or what to add next. Yet sometimes, a song will come along on the ol' mp3 player that lights a spark...

- Exercise
Releasing endorphins can get the mind flowing as well. There have been plenty of times where I have been exercising and I get hit with inspiration.

- Writing
I really enjoy writing, and sometimes focusing on words, or writing down things from within help open up a mental block.

- Composing
Yeah, the whole purpose of this thread is the fact that you can't compose anything that seems to fit the purpose for which it is needed. There is a session that I engage in that is basically an expulsion of musical thoughts. I have a lot of ideas in my mind, but in my opinion, none of them are good (or fit the situation that I need them for). So, I just write. I get all of the ideas that aren't useful (at the time), out of the way to make room for new, and better ideas. I also see this as just jamming out. Taking an instrument and playing - No thinking, just letting the notes flow.

I hope I was of some use to you. I've been stuck in the same part of a song (two songs actually), going on a week now. I finally managed a breakthrough in one and college saunters over and fills my already overflowing arms with more work.
