Defeating writers block - tip from LifeHacker

From a LifeHacker article
Writer's block isn't hard to cure.

Just write poorly. Continue to write poorly, in public, until you can write better.
I believe that everyone should write in public. Get a blog. Or use Squidoo or Tumblr or a microblogging site. Use an alias if you like. Turn off comments, certainly—you don't need more criticism, you need more writing.

Do it every day. Every single day. Not a diary, not fiction, but analysis. Clear, crisp, honest writing about what you see in the world. Or want to see. Or teach (in writing). Tell us how to do something.

I've read similar things before. And I am trying to write every day. Maybe not quite the writing they talk about in that last para but to just force my brain into writing space every single day. Even if it's only for a few words or paragraphs. Just keep at it.
