Thanks! Great advice! Sometimes when I'm stuck I'll open a book or magazine to a random page close my eyes and point my finger - open my eyes and whatever word is there I begin with that word. Also, another trick that helps me if I'm writing fiction or attempting to describe someone - I look at the obituaries, choose a picture of the departed person and describe them - just from the photo and my imagination.
