The best way to avoid getting writers block is to treat your writing as a fun creative exercise, rather than work. Have fun with your prose! Don't dwell on the blank pages before you, just relax and start writing. Also, don't be afraid of messing up, that's what second and third drafts are for.
If you do happen to get writers block don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Take a deep breath then take a break. Go for a walk; see a movie, anything to get your mind off writing. Once you've cleared away the cobwebs you can take another crack at it, but start slowly. Think of a book you've read, and then imagine what one of your characters would think about it. Or, put yourself in a situation from your book. How would you react, the same or differently than your character? As you work your way back into your story, writing should come easier and, if all goes well, effortlessly.
I hope these tips work for you, but everyone is different. What works for some won't work for others. So if you have any other methods that help you get over writers block or keep you from getting it, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
