Writers block

I have had writers block for over a year now!! I have been writing poetry, short stories and lyrics since I was about 10. No idea why I have not been able to write anything! 

Any ideas of what I can do to start writing again?

I usually go for a long walk and listen to inspirational music ("a fine frenzy" for me) and start writing whenever I feel inspired.

There is a book called "If You Can Talk, You Can Write" where the author describes just sittinng down and writing everything that comes to mind, basically, until you find a topic and some clarity. It helped me with essays in jr high and high school.

I do that all the time and it used to help when I would not know what to write about. I will look into that book.

The walk may work. I haven't been out in the woods in a long time. Could be part of the reason. I normally go on a hike alone at least once a month. Just haven't had time.

I had writers block for a while around 2010 I think it was... Or before... Something like that... Anyways, what helped is my friend and I started doing little challenges for one another. We'd think of titles for one another and then we'd write a story or poem for that title. Now I usually just use booze, music or hang with my friends and the thoughts come flooding in haha
