Artist and blogger Scott Hansen deals with creative blocks all the time, like any of us do, whether we’re in an artistic field or not. So he asked 25 of “today’s most exciting creators what they do when the ideas aren’t flowing”.

The block breakers these creatives use vary quite a bit, but we really like the simplicity of the solution Jason Kottke highlighted:
Slice and chop 2 medium onions into small pieces.
Put a medium sized pan on a medium heat with a few glugs of olive oil.
Add the onions to the pan, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
(It goes on for a full recipe, a glass of wine and washing the dishes.) The entire post is worth a read, but it also piqued our curiosity, so we want to know: How do you overcome creative blocks? Share your best methods in the comments.
