Tips for battling writers block...

I haven't written much of anything in close to 2 months now. I don't know what my problem is as I've never experienced this before. Not to this degree at least. Usually, there's something I can at least work on if nothing else inspires me. Not the case at the moment. Ideas are there, I open a blank document and nothing. I've re-read my WIPs, hoping that will spur the drive for me to write more. I've re-read some older fics, hoping that would give me a new idea for something else in that fandom. Nothing.

Very frustrating, esp. considering I had a ficathon fic due 11 days ago and I'm no closer to finishing it today than I was a month ago.

On the upside, I've gotten a lot of reading done because I can't stand sitting at the computer feeling inadequate because words escape me at the moment.

So, what do you do to combat writer's block?
