Writer's Block

I got an upsetting email from a client not too long ago. She was suffering from writer's block and asked if I knew of anything that might help or if I had ever had other clients experience something like this. Unfortunately, while I'm sure I've had many clients experience writer's block, I didn't feel I had any really good advice to offer. Since I knew some of her personal interests I gave a few writing assignments that I thought might appeal to her, but I wasn't too sure my advice was anything different from what she'd already tried. So now I'm going to ask you for help. The next time a client calls with a similar problem, I want to know that I actually have some good advice. So, what do you do when your writing has hit the wall or you feel you have nothing left to say?
