Writer’s Block

I am working on a novel and I have hit a terrible block.  I get up from the screen and go to the notebook. I drop the notebook and venture back to the screen.

I listen to people talk.  I read what others have written.  Yet, I still cannot put a complete thought onto a page or the neon screen that glares back at me.

So I ask you.  How do you deal with writer’s block?  Do you get up and walk away for ten minutes?  An hour? A day?  A week?  Do you have some sort of ritual to overcome this wall of defeat?  Do you start writing about something completely unrelated to what you have already started?
