im writing a book and what you gotta do is carry around a digital voice recorder, and a note pad because inspiration happens in the weirdest places. what i also do is i try to close my eyes and picture what is happening in my story. i picture all the details then speak into the recorder what i see and describe in full detail. dont open your eyes or the story will change just keep going till you have a good base to start off on again if you wanna recite some more later. of course the reciting bit is something to do more in the privacy of your own home so A people dont think your crazy and B so you dont get lost on a bus or something or get hurt while in public

If you have a publisher who has accepted your manuscript, do you have a deadline? If you can take a little break from it it may heap. You may also join a writer's brainstorming event and talk to other writers about your book. Try Googling this.They also must have experienced this block and may be willing to give you some ideas.

I don't have a publisher because I'm a starter...I'm writing my first book with confidence, I hope I find a publisher.

That's okay. We all start sometime. I hope my suggestions helped you. Just allow yourself to take some breaks. Do something you enjoy. It will free up the writer's block. Above all, don't beat yourself up about it. It happens to all writers at times. Hope this helps.

Take a blank sheet of paper. In the middle of it write one word that applies to whatever ideas you have about the ending of your book. Around it write other words that apply to the first word (not necessarily to your book). Around that add words that apply to the circle of secondary words. Keep adding words that apply to words already there. Somewhere in that chain, an idea will probably pop up.
I was told this method by an author. It gets your brain away from the "I can't do this" sticking point.
