It happens to every songwriter (even Paul Simon). Here’s how I and my friends overcome when the river of musical inspiration runs dry.
What helps songwriters get unstuck can also help any writer get unstuck: "Stuck happens for a lot of reasons but I feel it happens most times because of self-censorship. We fear what we are writing might be terrible, so we end up not writing at all."
When you get stuck, go for a walk, work on a different project, play the air guitar. When you get back to the project, you're more likely to be able to get done what you need to get done.
One of the not so well kept secrets about learning to write well is reading well written material. Good fiction writing can teach us about intereaction, for example, which is very useful when writing in social.

Reading is one of the major foundations of any student's studies. In any subject - including math - understanding how to read and being able to comprehend words on a page is a make or break in academics and in life more generally.
Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.
Surveys indicate that screens and e-readers interfere with two other important aspects of navigating texts: serendipity and a sense of control.
People report that they enjoy flipping to a previous section of a paper book when a sentence surfaces a memory of something they read earlier, for example, or quickly scanning ahead on a whim. People also like to have as much control over a text as possible - to highlight with chemical ink, easily write notes to themselves in the margins as well as deform the paper however they choose.

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article.

Top writers participated in a panel discussion on the uses of narrative, and the deep human need for stories that amuse, surprise, instruct, and otherwise make temporary sense of a disorderly world.
This is a great review of Scoopit pros and cons. I like using Scoopit. I read, review and collect information I feel is important to follow or to share. So far this stays on the pages I curate at scoopit and I can return easily again and again if I want to refer to them again, I can also find articles others thought worthy of curating and sharing on their pages. I encourage my students to follow their passion and interest through curating as well.
From grade school onwards, avid readers get a lot of flak. This may be because reading is one of the most solitary pleasures; it's not an obvious means of bonding with peers (even though, duh, reading connects us with other people and cultures).
